Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    I’ve read that the older one gets, the faster time seems to fly!! There’s an actual theory about this belief. Judging from my own empirical knowledge, I can validate this theory in the most practical sense!
