I just read an article about blinking. It is interesting to note that an infant only blinks his or her eyes about once every minute. Adults blink their eyes 10 to 15 times a minute. We blink our eyes more than necessary, sometimes blinking becomes part of our conversation like punctuation marks. Think about it the next time you are in conversation and they say something that you can hardly believe they said. You stand there with your mouth dropped and your eyes wide open as if to say, “I can’t believe you just said that!” Who knew their were other reasons for blinking, than to moisten our cornea and protect our eyeballs!
Everything blinks these days. Our battery chargers blink while they are charging and then a steady beam of light when they are fully charged. Our cameras blink when the battery is almost dead. Our car blinks when we are making a right hand turn or a left hand turn (hopefully.)
Then there is this… A very special moment is gone in the blink of an eye. Thankfully, our memory of the special moment remains. Our babies grow up to be cowboys, (I had to throw a little Willie and Waylon in there,) in the blink of an eye it seems. Our lives can change in the “blink of an eye” for good or bad. A car accident, a lottery win happens in the blink of an eye and everything changes.
Maybe if we blink our way in to next week, our lives will change for the better. If your lives are good already, I hope they get even better. If they are not so great, I hope they soon will be.
Blink, blink, blink and I say good night.
