Time is a Companion

Time is such an interesting thing - the older you get the faster it seems to fly. But I´ve always loved to get older, and that feeling hasn´t really changed yet. Yes, of course, there are wrinkles and loneliness, and my bones hurt as well as my soul, but on the other hand there´s experience and inner rest, so maybe time is my friend and a faithful companion of my life?
"Time" is this week´s SPA challenge theme and one of my all time favourites!

I agree with your comments about time, Marion. I like to say I've reached the age of contentment, when I forgive myself for those things I might have done better, and know I did the best I knew how to do at the time. Your card is well done, and you've given me pause for thought! Thank you.

Not sure I accept growing older as gracefully as you, Marion (would have liked to stay at about 35)but this is wonderful.

Nicely done.........

If we weren't always looking at a clock, we might get more done.

And getting older isn't as bad as some may think.

Cheers!

i really like this, i haven't seen much stamping, it's very effective. i like your saying, even though the reverse is probably true...it makes it sound like we have control of the time!
