Our Wednesday Hodgepodge host Joyce wanted a much needed snow day so we will resume our regularly scheduled program next week.
How will you spend your Snow Day? I will be spending mine making snow angels in an 88 degrees pool of melted snow with some fake owls and a swan who keep the ducks away :) This evening I will be going out to dinner with my dad and a couple who he has known since his high school days. They are celebrating their 68th wedding anniversary.
Speaking of anniversaries Mark and I will be celebrating ours on Monday the 24th. I have a post coming up on Sunday with some pictures from our weddings. Today I want to share something with you that happened at the pool this past Sunday.
As time goes by we often take things for granted. Also as time goes on we can sometimes let little things get on our nerves, especially when it comes to our husbands and aging. Right....anyone agree with me?
When I was at the pool two woman came there to relax. They got in the water and were sitting across the pool from me on a bench area where you can have spa jets on if you want. I had no intentions of listening to their conversation but it couldn't be avoided. I could hear what they were saying. I heard them say that it was a God thing how they met at a store while dropping off some film. I also know that there was "someone" who wanted me to hear their conversation.
They started to share stories about their deceased husbands. These woman were both around my age and that was a wake up call for me. I sat there listening to them reminisce about the things they miss and I was thinking just how lucky I was to have Mark. How unbelievable dumb it is to harp on him for the things that get under my skin when I should be doing nothing more than loving each moment he is in my life.
I will try my hardest to remember these two woman when my blood begins to boil!
