Life has a habit of throwing curveballs… my daughter Melody put a previous post up on the same topic… seems a family theme!
Maybe it’s just acknowledgement that no matter how much you want to plan out your life, and need the security to know what’s happening next… it just does not happen that way.
These last couple days I have had the pleasure to spend time with my dads older brother in Tennessee. The weather was lovely, the surroundings are beautiful and are beating snowy Minnesota. It’s been just him and me… chatting about everything and nothing. Looking through pictures, me watching him take a nap while I am crocheting… time we have never taken before… well, I have never taken before. A blessing.
And yet I know this will most likely be the last opportunity. Besides that my year in America is rapidly coming to and end, he is also of age and battling cancer. The curveball I was talking about.
Just when you think you have it worked out, and given family relationships it’s place.. it’s really the last time…
I am not complaining. I am blessed beyond measure… looking at my uncle I realise I am also blessed with a wider family who can put family history in perspective.
Above all, it puts time in perspective. No matter how much of it or how little of it we have. Use it wisely!
Time spend should never be wasted!!
