I sit here in my lazy-boy chair and look across the room at a picture of my kids when they were in elementary school I wonder not only were did the time go, but was that really part of my life? It seems so remote. Did I ever really have children that young? Weren't they always young adults?

I have never really longed to go back in time, but tonight I find myself wistfully remembering times when we were a family of five, actually six counting Mr Snuggles, laughing and sharing together in a family life never again to be experienced.

Where did the time go?

It's fall the days are getting shorter and I find that so sad! I miss the long sunny days. But at the same time there is a stillness and peacefulness that seems to come with the shorter days. Things seem to have finally slowed down for a bit. And with that slowing I find myself taking time to dream. To dream of future travel and vacation possibilities. I dream of foreign places, cruises to exciting ports, and fun and lively places like Disney World. I dream of a vacation full of exciting new experiences and at the same time I dream of a vacation that is filled with nothing more than a good book, a journal and maybe my sewing machine. I know many of these travel dreams will never come true and part of me finds that understanding to be a very sad one. On the other hand not all dreams are meant to come true their joy is found in the ability to dream. At least that's what I tell myself.....
