DAILY BLOG: Seasons of my life

I called my best friend from high school tonight ... she's still my best friend :) We live states apart and don't see one another often, but we can pick up the phone and pickup where we left off.

We are in the same season of our lives. Our babies are now in college, independent young women that we are proud of. My son has finished, has a good job and moving out next month.

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I'm getting older too

Yes, that is the hardest part .... not the getting old. We KNEW we would get old. But who knew the changes we would go through in the past 5 years, 3 years, 2 years, 4 months?

Now for me (and I think for her too), the really hard part of the changes we've gone through are over. It is time to move to the next season ... pre-grandchildren season. One where we can remember who we were before the wedding and kids came along!

(I reminded her that 27 years ago today, we were in her Pinto and got hit by another car in the Post Office parking lot, after I was mailing Thank You cards for my bridal shower.... that is NOT exactly the season I'm talking about!)

I think I'm ready to plan that sewing craft room, open the boxes of cloth, utilize the Pintrest and choose the colors for the walls and this new season.

    You make getting old sound so dreadful Believe me, I'm sixty one and very happy to be home with my wife (both retired). We don't need an exciting time to keep us happy. Reading, Sparking, going to the gym, just talking (Oh, yeah, and staying up late). These are the things that fill my time. She is a writer, so she's often doing that. If I have any regets, it's that I didn't turn this age sooner. Thanks for reading, Glenn
