8/14/07 "Live for Today"
Is it me? Summers seem like weekends, they go by far too fast!!! It's the middle of August and we're already bombarded with back to school ads. This week the temperatures are dipping back to the seventies. And of course we've been talking Packers. We do that all summer.
Do you ever wonder why everyone is in such a hurry in this country? We find it hard to savor the moment, seize the season, or live for today.
Well, I think I've figured it out. Just when we get mentally adjusted to one season, the hype starts for the next. I've seen a number of talk shows touting fall fashions. At least one person I know is busy planning trips to watch football games in September. And yesterday, a startling confession from a friend. She has finished...yes, finished her Christmas shopping!!! I had a sudden urge to trip her..ha..ha!!
How can you enjoy summer, when your thinking about Santa?
How can you savor fall, if your planning for a snowstorm? Why can't we just seize the moment? Why can't we enjoy life now!
Don't look at me! I don't have the answer. I'm just hoping I can find time to soak up summer sun before the school buses start to roll!
