When My Daughter is Thirty....

There was an interesting conversation at breakfast, the morning after the sleep over. One girl was asking my daughter how old she would be in 20 years. "28" she said. I laughed and said - "... yes.... and in 22 more years, you'll be THIRTY...."

I can't imagine. I realize 22 years is a long time away, but MY daughter at 30 years old is not something I spend much time thinking about. I just want us to survive to 9.

Also odd to me is that I have finally reached the age that I associate with my mother. 42. She was probably 42 when I made the connection that she actually HAD an age, or I was asked to tell someone how old she was. Needless to say, that was many years ago

Time itself just baffles me, and I am glad that I am not it's keeper. How we got to the middle of November already totally baffles me.

I've tried to speed it up and slow it down, but I can't. All I can do is live TODAY. If I am able to choose well and love well in the moment, the tomorrows and yesterdays will take care of themselves.
