Today I thought about Mom a lot. I'm not sure why, I think it's just one of those things. I sure do miss her. I wish she could answer me when I talk to her. I'd really like to hear some of her wisdom. Even if it's only her telling me to buck up. I'd be OK with that.

I'm also feeling out of sorts due to the switch to Daylight Savings Time. This earlier switch really stinks. I was just getting used to having daylight in the morning when I head to work and bam! now it's back to darkness. Does it really save energy?

I'm not sure if it saves so much energy or not. I read somewhere "they" were going to possibly cease the daylight savings times. I know as I get older, it really knocks my sleeping patterns around for a while.

I still have times where I think of my folks. Certain days or even seasons bring those thoughts about. I would love to hear my dad's take on the present economic situation right now. He was so intelligent with stocks and numbers. He's probably saying to my mom "Glad we're not down there anymore!"

I thought only the mad British had daylight saving time - a legacy of the war years when the farmers needed more time in the fields to keep us fed (I think). I think of my dad quite often, 9 years on. Usually when I hear some music or see a programme that I know he would have enjoyed or mum does something that he would have found funny.

I have heard the reason for daylight savings time has to do with farmers and their work time, as Lily has said. It seems a bit antiquated now.

I think of my parents daily. Just yesterday we were looking at a seed starting kit and I said how much Mom would have enjoyed it. I felt sad we hadn't done one when she was still here.

Betsy, those are just the type of moments when I miss Mom the most. It's so hard. I'm so grateful for the advice and support of all of you who have traveled this road before me. I hope that I gave you all half the support that you give to me. God Bless you all.

Chris, me too. I was trying to post on your blog that I too have fibro and can empathize with your pain.

Nancy, I'm so glad that you are still stopping by and checking in.

Lily, what can I say? We Americans are daft too! Hugs to you.
