Fortunes

Rick & I went out for Chinese one of the days I was in Seattle.  Our fortunes read as follows:

Me:  You are given the chance to take part in an exciting adventure.

Him:  Your life becomes more and more of an adventure!

 

 

We thought it was so prophetic!

Time

I wrote before about time flying by.  I remember when this tiny bundle was finally brought to me, after what felt like FOREVER.  He was perfect. He was healthy, despite the fears to the contrary that sent us into the o.r.  Now, technically he’s a man. He’s old enough to go fight for our country, gamble, and whatever else is new for an 18 year old.  He graduates high school in 13 days and will go to college in the fall.  But I still see him as that baby, being cradled in my grandmother’s arms (from this post) and it’s so hard to accept that he doesn’t need mama anymore.

lonely

I’ve often heard of people describing how they can feel lonely in a crowd of people, and I feel the same way. Only I’m not in a crowd, just a few others in my house.  My daughter knows I’m here, but I don’t think anyone else does.
