11 long months and 1 short one

Tonight my family from Vermont said good-bye for another year. This couple are my favorite people in the world. Married for 57 years and raised 6 children and every single summer arrived with the car packed to the rafters for a Nova Scotia summer.

Each year I wait impatiently for 11 long months and then July comes and goes before I know it! Why is that??? So as of tomorrow, I will begin to count down the 11 long months again.

When I was younger I always poked fun at the adults as they hugged and cried as they said their farewells --- and now as I am older I am usually the first one to cry!! I guess as we all age we appreciate time more. After all, they are 78 and 79 years old and drive all the way from Vermont. Really, how many more years will they be able to do this? Many, many I hope but we never know eh!

Safe travels and the countdown starts.......



  1. You need to cut that wait down, go to Vermont once a year and then your visits would only 6 months apart. You should never wish your life away.

  2. What's up friends, how is the whole thing, and what you wish for to say concerning this piece of writing, in my view its really amazing in favor of me.
