“We don’t fall in love …
We choose to walk into love with eyes wide open …
Choosing to take each step along the way with each other.”

Happy Anniversary Rebecca and Phillip …
Many more steps and happy together days wished for you …

Daughter and her husband returned to the states this month for his brother’s wedding.
A friend posted on his Facebook page that the time of seeing one another again was an …
incredible time catching up and seeing how adulthood has treated us after college.
‘This is my husband’ … ‘meet my wife …’ Wow!
We actually did it. We ‘grew up’!

But not yet. Not really …

Our ‘nest’ emptied 5 years ago, and for some time (years actually),
I felt a little ‘lost’ in purpose and routine (to be expected perhaps after
shopping, cooking, cleaning for 6 … and now there are ‘2’).
Eventually you move on, discover, and get comfortable in your ‘new place’,
have opportunities to focus on what used to be ‘dreams’ …
and you realize you haven’t really “grown up” yet.
“Growing up” takes place every day.

You may graduate but you’re never ‘done’.
And one day you’ll likely find yourself doing things in a completely
different field than the one you chose when heading off to college.
Sometimes that’s how ‘growing up’ works!
