On this last day of 2010, I wanted to leave a profound message. Profound messages don’t just pop up when you need them.
Then I decided that I must add this adorable photo that I took of my granddaughter and her younger cousin. As I was studying the photo, my mind rambled to wishes that Katherine would one day enjoy a sister. (seems we just cannot help wanting good things from our lives for others.) The fact is more likely that Kat may remain an only child. Besides, I’ve heard of sisters who caused nothing but heartache for each other.
Well, Maddie and Kat are cousins who spend every day at my house and will attend the same school etc. seems Kat already has a sister. I know that they argue like sisters 🙂
Just yesterday I said to a 12 year old day care friend of mine,”That has GOT to be rough!”
She said “What?”
“You know, getting up and going out to day care even as an infant. I got to stay in bed each morning until I went to school. You guys have to get up for “work” .”
She looked at me like I had two heads. “No big deal.”
BAM! Now I get it. Every single life is unique and whatever the experiences, they belong solely to that person. Our good wishes for others to have similar special experiences are kind but usually blind.. “What’s good for the goose is not likely good for the gander.”
My profound message to you for the coming year is: Live, Laugh, Love and appreciate your own unique lives!
Happy New Year to all!
