It is already three o'clock. This day has gone by so fast. And it's Friday. This week has gone by so fast. It is already half way through October. This month has gone by so fast. Where does the time go? As Judy Collins once sang. Once a wise person was asked what is the most valuable thing on earth. He or she said it is time. Time is actually the only thing we really possess and we must spend it well. I try to make my time with Kate count. I don't have a well worked out plan. I just try to gauge her needs or just see what might get a smile from her. We just try to have fun doing ordinary things. I think that's going to be my goal in retirement...make the ordinary extraordinary. Kate will let me know how I am doing. Oops I think she just pooped and it's no ordinary poop. It's extraordinary! She has that guilty look on her face.
Love you anyway.
