every Saturday morning at
9 am at
Le Boulanger at San Felipe and Yerba Buena. There is a Starbucks
across from it if you need something "special" to go with your bagel or
pastry. Away coffee this month will be at Bellano (B2)
the new San Pedro Square Market. They only do coffee here, but
there is a crepe place called Cre-Paris in the market as well.
You can check them out on the San Pedro Square Market web site at: http://www.sanpedrosquaremarket.com/.
Car pooling is advised as
parking is metered or $6 per car in the parking garage.
AND THEN IT IS WINTER.....
You know. . . time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware
of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just
married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it
seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that
I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my
hopes and dreams.
But, here it is... the winter of my life and it catches me by
surprise...How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where
did my youth go? I remember well seeing older people through the years
and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that
winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what
it would be like.
But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting grey...they move
slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse
shape than me...but, I see the great change...Not like the ones that I
remember who were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is
beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see
and never thought we'd be. Each day now, I find that just getting a
shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat
anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will... I
just fall asleep where I sit!
And so...now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all
the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do
things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know,
that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will
last...this I know, that when it's over on this earth...its over. A new
adventure will begin!
Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I
should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have
done. It's all in a lifetime.
So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind you, that it will
be here faster than you think. So, what ever you would like to
accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don't put things off too
long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can
never be sure whether this is your winter or not! You have no promise
that you will see all the seasons of your life...so, live for today and
say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...and hope
that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done
for them in all the years past!
"Life" is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to
those who come after. Make it a fantastic one.
LIVE IT WELL!
DO SOMETHING FUN!
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
