The last few days, I have been reading through the old posts on this blog. I was at times embarrassed by some of the things I shared and at others, I was rather awed by how great my life was about 4 years ago. My focus was sharp and firmly planted on my boys. Along the way, I allowed myself to get distracted from my purpose and I focused instead on developing a photography business. Many people can have more than one iron in the fire and do just fine, unfortunately that’s not me. 🙂
Last week The Office series finale was on and one of the characters had one of the most poignant quotes of the show. It was Andy Bernard and he said, “I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days… before you’ve actually left them.” It really tugged at my heart because I was totally feeling that way, too. I miss the days when the boys and I would spend time together working on different projects, taking walks on the trail, exploring our city or our state. The days we spent snuggled on the couch watching, “Peep and the Big Wide World”, “Time Warp Trio”, “Sonic X”, “LIttle Bear” and many, many others, were well spent, too. Now, they’re much older and the days of snuggling on the sofa are probably past but I don’t think it’s too late for me to reconnect with them and spend some meaningful time together. I know these are the good old days now and I plan to savor each and every one.
Hope all is well in your world. 🙂
