Time marches on

I was 8 years old in 1969 when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. I can remember our family sitting in front of a small black and white tv set watching the news cast. That was back when there was no such thing as cable tv. We probably had rabbit ears on that tiny tv set. I do not remember what emotions I experienced at the age of 8 years old but I can imagine that as a boy I was probably pretty taken in by all of this. Wow, someone is walking on the moon and we can watch it in our living room.

Neil Armstrong joined the rank and file of many other adventurous pioneers and made his mark in the history books with his walk on the moon. Today we found out that he passed away at the age of 82 years of age due to the complications from a heart surgery earlier this week.

There are many different things going on in our world and thanks to the Internet and social media we are constantly reminded of these changes. If something is newsworthy anywhere on our globe someone is there broadcasting it to the rest of the world. No matter how much might be changing in our world one thing remains constant. Time is constant and stops for no one. Every day is a gift from God and what we do with the days he gives us is our gift back to him.

I can only hope that I will be a blessing to my family and that they know I love them. Most of us will never be in the history books like Neil Armstrong and we certainly will never make it to the moon. Nevertheless we can each figure out our own individual moon walks and make the best of our lives here on earth.

Rest in peace Neil Armstrong. I bet you are dancing on the moon.

  1. > we can each figure out our own individual moon walks
    I like the challenge 😉

  2. I love that… thinking about our own individual moon walks. And how our kids have access to so much these days that they are rarely impressed, but they still think their daddy is a hero.

  3. Thank you so much for the replies. It is nice to know that folks are actually reading my drivel from time to time. 🙂
