Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away.
Well we have had a busy weekend around these parts. My husbands sweet grandmother passed away on Friday, it was not a big surprise more a blessing really, she had suffered for so long. I am in charge of making a DVD slideshow of her life, and it has occurred to me how much things change in a lifetime. I love the sweet picture of her in the school house with the girls wearing their fanciest dress, with the boys in overalls. It seems almost like a different world. Sometimes I wonder with all our progression in technology, if we are going forward or backward? I hope that the generations after me, will still enjoy simple pleasures of playing bear feet outside, watching a seed grow, feeding animals, simply finding joy beyond technology and media.
