We arrived in Red River, NM today about lunch time.  The temperature had dropped 20 degrees from when we left Oklahoma at 5:30am and the sun wasn't even up yet.  There's a light breeze blowing and the sun is playing hide & seek with the clouds.  The high today reached about 75.  A breath of fresh air for my sweet husband who has been working outside in 100 degree heat. 

We usually have a whole host of people - family and friends - who come here together.  This year there are just a few coming - and today it's just the 6 of us.  The 4 from our house and my husband's parents. 

Today I went for a walk with my mother in law and my kids.. as we walked I had a new realization that time is marching on. 

My son is about to enter into his senior year.  My daughter is a sophomore.. and my mother in law is showing some signs of getting older.  It's sad to me that times have and are changing, and there's absolutely nothing I can do about it..  Like it or not, life is different now than it was 5 years ago, and it will be even more different just a year from now. 

I pray I will enjoy every minute.  
Cherish every opportunity to show those around me that they're loved.  
Because they sure are.
