Montgomery Locals Apr. 25, 2018
It’s hard to believe that we are in the process of transitioning to summer (somebody please tell that to the weather).
Virtuoso’s Spring Musical is this weekend and the carnival is right around the corner. In about six weeks another group of seniors will trade their backpacks for diplomas and head out into the world.
Am I the only one who wonders where time goes? It seems to be rushing by faster and faster with each passing year. One of my favorite book series of all time is “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.S. Lewis, and one of the characters ponders, “Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different?”
It’s a good reminder for all of us to embrace what we can of the time we have, because everything perpetually changes. And if we aren’t satisfied with the way things are, to make the changes that we can.
THOT “We must have ideals and try to live up to them, even if we never quite succeed. Life would be a sorry business without them. With them it’s great and grand.” Lucy Maud Montgomery
