Treading Water


There are some days when you just feel old. Days when your body is tired, your mind exhausted, and your emotions are spent.

There are other days when you become nostalgic. You reminisce about growing up, distant friends, and family members you long to see.

The passing of life seems more real on certain days. Days such as anniversaries, birthdays, holidays and other dates in the calendar year which mark life changing events.

For some reason time seems to slow down on these days and we think more about the people and places that have meant so much to us and have played a role in making us who we are today.

The current of life sometimes moves too swiftly. On days when it slows may we enjoy treading water and be thankful for those who taught us how to swim.
