FMF Word—Trial

I wasn’t sure how to write about this word. The trials of my life have changed so much with the times. Time—golly, that’s a trial in and of itself for me…

I have always been acutely aware of time. And now, in my 60’s, it seems to occupy a good deal of my thoughts. Perhaps that is because I am in the short end of a good long life?

So this week—my trial has been to enjoy our frozen pond. We’ve had terrific cold weather for the past two weeks and our little pond has over six inches of ice on it.

So my trial this week? Enjoy our frozen pond, ice skate carefully, slowly, and have fun with this ephemeral time of winter…Glory to God!

  1. Ooooooooo look how beautiful and smooth it is!
    Way to go Mitzy… I am in awe.
    You are bringing back sweet memories of when I ice skated on the lake I grew up on… but I was 10 years old. My ankles could not handle it now.
    Way to be awesome! Nice essay… ❤️

    • Ahhh, thank you kindly, Nancy. Such sweet memories. We have skated of and on for many seasons. Now I go slow and easy. 😊

  2. 👏🏻👏🏻 You go, girl! I skated all during my youth and when I was a younger adult. I decided in my 60’s, which are in my rear view mirror, to do it one last time. Nada, wasn’t going to work, I couldn’t get settled on the skates. I was disappointed, but there are a lot of things one can’t do when they age, and for me this was one. So, I applaud your ability to do it, enjoy it, and thanks for sharing.

    • You’re too kind, Judy. I truly go a snails pace—nothing to prove. Isn’t there so much to give up in old age? I have decided when I can no longer ride my dear horse, High Hope, I’m throwing in the towel. She is my precious friend, and we have been partners for over 16 years.

      We still have fond memories, yes? Getting old ain’t for the faint-of-heart is it?
