Last night I looked over at my husband and said, “Is it my imagination or is time just flying by?” I was being VERY serious. I remember giving a  presentation at a bank (in 2001) and beginning by saying, “Today is my 50th birthday!” The audience relaxed their professional demeanor and sang Happy Birthday. I enjoyed every minute of my BIG day!

It seems like the ten years that followed went by in the blink of an eye.

I wish I could slow life down….

I’ve come up with a plan that I have named, ” Debi’s …Make Each Day Last A Little Longer.”

First of all, I’m going to start a petition to slow down the speed limits.  Drivers are ALWAYS in such a hurry!  This way when we get to a red light, instead of being aggravated, we can roll down our windows and give each other a friendly wave and maybe exchange a word or two.

Then I will convince everyone I know to move at a slower pace. Take more time to smell the flowers and get to know the neighbors. Turn off the phone and have a real conversation. Linger an extra minute outside to watch the sunset or smell the air after a rain.

Stop and smell the flowers

Stop and smell the flowers

Last but not least, I’m going to take my husband’s advice and “forget” to put my glasses on more often. He liked when I kissed him one morning and said, “Sweetie,you look exactly the same as when I met you 45 years ago!”

We were both fifteen..Seems like just yesterday!
