In My Humble Opinion - IMHO
Sharon wants to write about a wide range of issues but mostly relating to society/culture, parenting, homemaking, humor, pets, schooling, music, humor, books, relationships (Dr. Abby wannabe) humor . . . did I mention humor? Bio: I am “retired” now after working so many different jobs since I was 16. I’ve not met many people who have had such an eclectic work history as I have had. Factory work of different kinds, farming, nursing, owning a motel, driving buses both school and transit, an artisan in a collectable basket business, office work, church office, lead teacher and assistant director in a child care center, teacher substitute and school nurse substitute and a para professional in public schools. Sunday school teacher and ministry team that traveled to other churches in other states and Canada. I belong to the Risen Son Riders, the Devils Lake Chapter of the Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA). And I am a bird watcher - love to see the birds!

Another year has flown by faster than a speeding bullet.  It really does seem as though time itself has sped up in my life time.  I remember long lazy summers when I actually got bored.  I haven’t experienced that in decades.  I miss it. 

 

If anyone has any thoughts on why this happens I would love to hear it. 

 

When I think about how life must have been before automobiles and other modern connivances like automatic washing machines and the like.  I don’t understand how people got all the things done they did and have time to invent things.  How did people cut trees and clear the land for building and farming while doing the every day things like cook and make clothes and the like. 

 

I often think when I don’t feel like there are enough hours in the day to do all I set out to accomplish how it would have been if I were born two hundred years earlier.  But in the same thought I am so very grateful for all these modern connivances including the computer I’m writing this on.  I spend way more time on it than I should and perhaps that should be my New Year resolution….spend less time on the computer.  I wonder if I can make that happen.  Wish me luck! 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM MY HOUSE TO YOURS AND MAY WE ALL EXPERIENCE THE LOVE OF CHRIST AND PEACE which is where our true prosperity lies.
