Hitting the Reset Button

One of several clocks around our house that need reset...
While visiting a blog that I frequently find interesting, I read the following:  In Japan, one’s lifetime is measured in 60-year cycles. When you reach the age of 60, you celebrate birth once more, returning to the world as a newborn baby.  Mikio Hasui says this year, when he turns 60, he will hit the reset button on life.

Somewhere along the line, I think I forgot to hit the reset button! (And where HAVE the last six-and-a-half years gone?!?)   So this morning when I read the following challenge from St. Alphonsus de Liguori, I decided to HIT it!

Let us make up for lost time.  Let us give to God the time that remains to us.


  1. I think I forgot to hit the reset button too! Thank you for the reminder of what is most important!
    And thank you for visiting and for your sweet comment, I find it so amazing of how little things can reset our minds to wonderful memories of childhood, I also had a grandmother that baked a lot.
    P.S. I saw your photo in your last post, "You look marvelous, darling," so many of my blogging friends are posting new photos and are looking younger by the day, I keep asking what they are doing that I am missing. ~smile~

  2. Yay......I get to start over this year....yet again a reminder though that we get a do-over every day....I very often forget that!!!

    1. I found it an interesting concept ... and wondered "why 60"? I'm pretty sure they're not living to 120!

  3. This hit my heart. My husband turned 61 last year and somehow society keeps telling us we are finished. I think it has been harder for me, since I am 54, to see how we act as people age..which is suppose to be a blessing. I like this thought. Reset!
