Time in a bottle or a suitcase?

Jim Croce sang about “Time in a Bottle” in 1972.

“…But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with….”

That’s how I feel about my Mark, my kids, family and friends. Therefore, I seize every opportunity to have fun with those I love.

Mark and I have been living out of a suitcase for seven months, today. We moved from our Hawaii apartment at the end of July, staying in a hotel for two weeks, then moved off the island mid-August. We traveled by plane, train, automobile, hot air balloon, truck and more planes to reach today. We’ve staying in a dozen hotels and ate from many buffets and restaurants. We used laundromats, Mom’s washer and sinks to do our laundry.

We visited with high school, college, business and life-long friends. We celebrated Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Winter, New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day, each in different places.

Life is a series of things to do, people to enjoy and places to visit. I choose to embrace it all in the time I have here on Earth. How ’bout you?

Aloha,

Denise
