Over a lifetime one does not always accomplish everything on the personal planner-you don't always get to make the trips, see the sights, reach the goals you would like.
Even relationships are not always what you dream of in different decades of life especially as years pass and the family dynamics change.
One thing that compensates for these dissapointments is ENJOYING WHAT YOU GET AND BEING THANKFUL FOR THE PRESENT..for the NOW!
I don't ever get tired of making special time for my family..my heart is never so crowded that I can't make room for our Children, their mates and the Grands.
Every day is a gift..every birthday, anniversary, graduation,wedding or just a gathering..is an Event for me!
I guess that's an advantage of getting old..being able to see so many years behind that each day is a gift to treasure. I do!
