Our church family had an event last Sunday night where all the families with new borns in this past year were honored and recognized I was shocked that there seemed like 300-400 babies (not really, maybe 60) but it seemed like a lot of new borns and young families. It was a great night to honor these families as they are beginning or continuing the journey of raising a family.
I think it made me feel old. I don't have any young ones at home any more as both mine are driving and one is married. That stage has passed for us.
I also read a blog posted about someone turning 42 pointing out that Deep Thought Was Right About 42 where she pointed out that "she is not the wonder kid anymore." I'm past her too.
Well, I'm glad to be here. I've been blessed and I have many friends around, family in town, health. And I've finally learned that one is never to use two spaces after a period.
By the way, read this short story. Just do it.
