So, we're in the big city and nothing is free - including internet. So I won't be posting anything tomorrow, unless I find some way and Wednesdays will be late.
It's interesting being somewhere familiar, with familiar folks and yet be constantly aware of how time keeps moving. Grandbaby pictures, old stores gone, catching up with friends and their lives. And even while we are so far away from Georgia our lives are changing.
Robert asked Carrie to marry him Saturday night! We are thrilled for both of them. We watch our friends here who've had son and daughter-in-laws for years. It always seemed so distant, so unusual and now it's here. Every step forward as parents brings to mind how our parent must've felt when we took these steps. And of course it brings to mind how we felt when we were young and no one - no one had ever felt like us.
Part of getting older seems to be an awakening to universal experiences. What a blessing to be able to see both sides without regret, without lamenting growing old, with appreciation for time and it's most telling attribute - it doesn't stop.
Sometimes I've acted like I had all the time in the world and other times like I will never have enough. But I have the same 24 hours in a day Ben Franklin and Mother Teresa did or John Grisham does today.
How exhillarating to know what all is possible! Ready, set, Go!
