Karen, your daughter is beautiful and you have asked the question humans have asked since we crawled out of our caves. Time has a way of going so slowly when we are young, and we grasp each moment, do things on the spur of the moment. We don't watch the clock and time crawls. Now that I am an early senior, my day is planned, I appreciate little surprise and try to work our lives so that we aren't busting our rears all the time..I watch the clock and it races. I find my day is over and I haven't gotten near what I should have done. Need a few more hours to complete everything. Sometimes I wish I could remember the carefree attitude I had as a teenager, where life was around the next corner and I couldn't wait to peek around it to see what lies ahead. It is an innocence I wish I could recapture.
When we put our youngest on a plane to college it really hit me that my life would change from this day forward. We would see our girls, but they would return as adults with life's decisions made by themselves. I felt lost and a bit not needed. For me it was a sad time. The years have passed, girls grown and one married and has children. I see myself in her actions with her kids and am proud. I wasn't ready and the clock keeps moving so fast, but a bit of me is going forward into the next generation. It is the way it should be. I am happy and feel blessed. You will too. Your daughter will bring you more experiences, more joy, but in a different, more grownup way. She will bring you such joy.

I want to surround myself with people who are "Cracked" for they are the ones that let the Sun Shine in.
