..."The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once."
Albert Einstein

How often do we say, "Where does time go"? As I grow older, I find myself wondering this frequently. Yesterday was our 18th wedding anniversary. Am I old enough to have been married for 18 years? What have we done for 18 years? In that time, we have been blessed with three amazing children and good health. We have enjoyed beaches together, many ball games and competitions with our children. We have worn out 5 (at least) vehicles and had four addresses. We have buried beloved family members and pets. We have seen the world change and rearrange. We have seen that the things on this earth are not steadfast. According to my calculations, I have prepared approximately 19,500 meals (give or take a few for vacations and eating out), washed close to 6000 loads of laundry and driven around 300,000 miles!!!!! It is a good thing that it doesn't all happen at once as Einstein referred to. Did I mention, that I wouldn't change a thing about it all.
