The change in time over the weekend has made me feel like I am ready for bed by 7:00 P.M. I am still a bit on the tired side from the quick trip back to Missouri for my mom's funeral and the early evening darkness is not helping. It will take a bit of time to adjust my internal clock. Coming home from work in the dark is a bit depressing as well.
This morning I was thinking about one of the many types of conversations I had with mom in recent years. On a day like today she would express how cold it was. "It was down in the 60's this morning. I had to get my heavy coat out." I would laugh and say, "Mom, we had snow and it is 30 degrees here. I don't want to hear how cold it is in Missouri at 60 degrees." She ignored me and continued on anyway.
Change is in the air on many different levels. We continue to go forth in a spirit of faith, hope, and joy. Take time today to let someone know you love them.
