|The train is leaving the station...are you on it|
or just dreaming about going? Don't let
life slip away.
The next morning I woke up, drank my coffee and announced that I was buying new golf clubs so I could enjoy them. I asked my husband if he wanted to do the same. That was when I broke the news to him that we were going to die one day and I did not want the day to come and go without us enjoying some of the things we had been "waiting" to do or buy!
When we arrived in the desert this winter we made arrangements to add a small porch in the front of our park model. I had been asking to have it done since we moved into the park model several years ago. My husband was not very enthusiastic but all I could think was I did not want to have the porch completed and then die within the next few months. I wanted to do it now and enjoy it while we could. He relented and has built something that we will use for as long as we can live in our little winter house.
Now I am using "the waiting is over" phrase more and more. I will ask Are we going to do this or not. If we aren't going to get things done, I want to know so I can quit dreaming and planning. We have come to an age when we cannot wait to buy what we can afford or do what we can afford to do. Time is not on our side...not anymore. Tic toc!
Have you ever had this happen? Is the wait over for you? If it is, why?
I was just wondering!
