It is interesting when you see the other side of the mountain. Does it make you feel accomplished or just older? To me, you have to look at where you’re at and where you want to be. There are many things that I want to do but I can’t just get up and go anywhere. I used to go where I wanted to go and I would just get up and go. I can’t do that anymore because my children need help as one is going to college next year and the other one starts high school. It makes me think about what I have wanted for my family and I think it’s going well.
However, I never really thought I would need to talk about the future and what it would bring. I thought that this part of life would be easier. My dad used to say little kids have little problems and big kids have bigger problems. I should’ve listened to what he said because it is coming true. For a person who was a second language learner my dad made sense with what he said. The old time teaching still is pertinent.
I am realizing how quickly time comes and goes. I hope that there is time for us to still have memories while our boys are with us. I feel like our time is going like Cat Stevens’ immortal song Cat’s in the Cradle. If you have never heard it you are missing out. Time goes before you know it. Just like life. Don’t waste your time.
Have a good week!
