Old Times

An unexpected event this past weekend has me remembering old times.  It has me thinking about how fast times goes and how things don't last forever.

I had to say goodbye to my sweet cat Roxy.  A presence in my life for 15 years.  The cat who sucked her tail when I held her as she really thought I was her mom.  She would cover her cat food dish with my socks.  She was always there to give me comfort and love.  During those years I lived alone...I was never really alone.

We could learn lessons from that kind of unconditional love.  Can learn lessons about how to live in the moment because all things end.  Even when we don't want them to.

Looking back on life helps you to appreciate where you are now.  This weekend brought that sadness, but also brought a celebration as Ella turned five.  The week was kicked off by a Tball game.  These times with my children are precious to me!  Steve is helping to coach them and I love to share that knowing smile when they do something goofy on the field.

It must bring him back too.  To these days:

That was Steve when he started playing the same sport.  And now, he is a grown man with a family, career and a house.

Reliving old times...sometimes it hurts and other times it bring joy.  All of it brought us to where we are now.
