6 days

In 6 days Darling Daughter and #1 Son, the Captain, will exchange wedding vows. The very next day 40 relatives and friends will descend upon my sister’s home where she is hosting a reception for the happy couple. I am not much thinking about any of this just now. I have too many vicissitudes of life sprouting on my shoulders. What happened to the golden years? I am now in that time period when life is supposed to be easy and pleasant. That is what was promised back when I was growing up. My body says it should be so, but the news and the mail and the world says something very different. Ten years ago I expected to live to be 90+ and not skip a beat. Today I am wondering what happened to the beat. I think the rhythm is completely different. There are days when I do not even understand the beat, let alone want to skip along with it.

Darling and Captain will begin a new song. I pray their lyrics do not lose their sweetness…that the God who dwells within them always has a place at their table.

And to Miss Green and Miss Pink, my new grandchildren…you are the sunshine on a cloudy day.

    A new phase, a new beginning, a new family born, new joys, new struggles, new endeavors, new relationships, new plans, new tomorrows, new reasons to observe, to teach, to live, to love, to give, to receive…Miss Pink and Miss Green await to inspire you, to look to you, to teach you, to learn from you, to warm your heart, to have tea parties and to give you a ready reason to smile. Being a grandparent is wonderful. I believe you will enjoy the journey and the labor. Playing Candyland or Old Maid on the floor or building a house with Legos has a way of subtracting years from one’s chronological age. Who knows? In time, we may both be 5 and 9 again! 🙂

    Love you,
    Meg (soon to be Aunt Meg to Miss Pink and Miss Green)
