Today I drove by the spot where I lived when my first child was born. It was back in 1986. So long ago I have a hard time remembering much from back then. I do remember that the love for my new baby girl was immediate and complete. I gazed upon that sweet little monkey face and hoped she would have a happy life. I still do, every day. She is a strong young woman who makes me proud. She'll have her ups and her downs but she can get through most anything.
You never know how things are going to turn out. You start down a path that you think could only lead to one place, then boom, you find yourself in a completely different spot. Sometimes it's your own doing, sometimes not, but either way it can be a shock. It's life though, isn't it? Moving forward, adjusting, adapting, doing the best you can. All while you have the time. Because as we see every day, our time is finite.
Hug the people you love while you can and then eat, drink, and be merry. Fortunately, tis the season for it.
