Have you ever noticed that the older we get the faster time goes. When we were young time dragged on forever; the summer holidays lasted forever, Christmas and birthdays never came quick enough and rainy days were hell! Adulthood, now you can blink and miss half the year or take a nap and a whole year is gone.

So when you leave something as an adult even with the best of intentions to come back to it in a few minutes, the next day, the next week, it never quite works out like that. The next thing you know and a year has gone by and your blog hasn't had a post. A week turns into a month turns into year(s) and you haven't spoken to that friend that meant the world to you in so long that now it would seem strange to talk to them. Time makes some things harder. Harder to type the first few lines, harder to dial the number, harder to make that first move.
Yet they say 'time heals all wounds'. Maybe this is the ultimate time paradox?
After losing a dear friend recently the advice I got from his wife really struck a chord, 'you don't know how much time you have, tell the people around you what they mean to you'. So do it today folks, tell your people that they are your people, reconnect those friendships you miss, work hard not to lose those friendships that mean something to you...there may not always be time to do it tomorrow!
I'll leave you with an artist my daughter has introduced me to and this song just seems right.
Love and hugs from me.
