When you looked at the title, you probably thought, “What?” Actually, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about Time’s passing. My oldest grandson just turned 14, and gosh it seems like he was just born!

Do you remember when you were a kid, and your parents would say it’s two months before you could go on vacation? And you thought it would never get there? Or that Christmas was six weeks away? It seemed like those times would never pass. Time dragged. Or you were having this awesome vacation, and it went by in like a flash?

I remember when my daughters were toddlers. I thought they’d never get out of that stage. I literally cheered when they could finally wash their own hair. And then before I knew it they graduated high school, college, and married. (They both had great weddings. I’ll write about those sometime. 😊) And then they waited and waited and waited to have kids. LOL

Finally we became grandparents when Nelson arrived fourteen years ago. BTW, his middle name is West. Made us really proud.

Time is elusive, sometimes moving much faster than we want—on a vacation–or dragging while you wait for a special event to arrive. And as each of us gets older, time really speeds up. It’s weird how time plays with us.

What are your experiences with time moving fast and moving slow? Am I the only one who has this experience of time? Love to hear from you.

I’m excited about a book reading I’m doing Sunday, April 30 in Fort Worth at a cool little bookstore. If you’re in the metroplex, I hope you consider coming. One of their tea drinks will be complimentary.

Here’s the link for the trailer for VULNERABLE.

The Second Chances Series will be spotlighted in May on NN Lights Book Heaven. The first two books will be on sale for 99 Cents May 5-12. You’ll find links on my social media when we get closer. 😊

    Hi Marsha, Time passes even FASTER, the older you get. How in heck’s name did I get to be a Nonagenerian? It can’t possibly be true, can it? In my head, I’m around sixty. About 15, I borrowed my mother’s chic black, sexy jacket and can still hear the music luring me to the nearby dance hall. Dancing and music were ‘life’ – was there anything more exciting?! American jazz was a great seducer…But so was my handsome husband, met a few years later. And how could we possibly have known we would clock up 70 years of happy marriage, travel and work together and have three, worthy sons?! We are both most grateful and appreciative to Mother Nature for our good fortune.

    1. Hey, Joy. What a great story. And yes, y’all are fortunate. I hope the sons and families live close. That makes it evern better. Thanks so much for stopping by. I so get you. My last BD did a number on me (no pun intended) and I’ve struggeld not to feel old. Didn’t help that I had a couple of health issues the first part of the year. Better now, and not feeling quite so old. Thanks so much stopping by. Always glad to hear from you. 🙂

        Thanks for replying. Sorry to hear you had bad health last year, Marsha; the good certainly helps…We’ve both had cancer and beaten it, thankfully (many years ago), but are so grateful our lads are well. Walk the good walk and take care. Hugs. Joy xx

    2. My health issues were nothing like yours, Joy. Still enough to slow me down. Glad your kids are well, too. 🙂

  2. Time really is zipping by at a crazy pace. Can’t believe next week is May and soon this year will be half over and my second kid will be MARRIED! I was shocked to get a Facebook “memory” from his college years today and see that it was five years ago already. Best wishes on the reading. Hope it’s a great turnout!

    Hi Marsha, glad to hear your health issues were taken care of. Though I don’t often think about it, time does seem to be going by quickly. Weddings are a wonderful marker of time. I always like to read about them in novels and I even put a wedding in one of my Sierra Creek Series books. Hope you enjoy the reading!

    1. Hey, Reggi. Yes, weddings are the best. Such markers of the time passing. I have a wedding in at least one of my books, too. Hoping to sell several books. This is a really nice little books shop and I can bring them some attention, too. Thanks so much for stopping by.
