The bell will be ringing

Posted Monday, July 27, 2009, at 4:06 PM

It is August and the bell will be ringing shortly calling all children back to school. Most of the kids I have talked to are ready to go back to see their friends.

I hope they enjoy the year. We spend most of our first 18 years in a hurry to grow up and get out of school and then it seems we wish we could go back. We seem to forget the things we disliked about it and only hold on to the good memories.

It is a good way to go through life -- turn lose of the bad and hold on to the good.

We all came to the same realization -- no matter what age we are, we have to get up, keep going and be somewhere every morning.

Time does keep marching on and the best we can hope for is to be able to keep marching with it for years to come and see our kids, grandkids and even great-grandkids grow up.
