Watching them as they go…
This week two friends of mine lost one of their parents. Another is going to lose her father in short order. It’s the time in life when we become parents to our parents and for many it’s a transition they’re not ready or prepared for…not that anyone could ever be.
It wasn’t long ago that we looked out and saw our parents and grandparents in the audience as we performed in school.
Then later as we looked out it was only our parents…and then too soon they weren’t there when we looked out…
Now our kids look out to us as the cycle of life continues its ever churning spirals of reality.
Watch them closely, while you still have them in sight.
I’m Don Rima and that’s the view From Where I Stand.
