Things sometimes are not the same as usual, like when one of your children (or close friends) aren’t there to participate. All weekend, we were missing one of the kids and then, there were three again and everything seemed right in the world.
It isn’t going to be long when the eldest will fly the coop and head off to start her own life, for real…not this pretend life we lead when we live with our parents. As if it isn’t real.
No, it won’t be easy. We will look back on these days, way back “then”, there were three of them at home and we had no idea how much more we had.
