I haven’t blogged about my daily life as much as I thought I would simply because I thought it would be boring. My mom has a blog that has something like a thousand unique readers a month. She writes about her life with my dad on the road (they live in their motor home) and if she doesn’t blog for a while people email her, concerned that she’s not blogging. My mom is great writer and her blog is interesting. It’s at www.joanontheroad.com/blog/. You can read all about my family, and Stevo and I occasionally rate an appearance. We live 1800 miles away so we don’t get to see everyone that often. I have a great family and although I don’t think they really understand my etheric life, they love me and are always there for me, especially during the toughest times of my life.
Nothing brings home to you the passing of time like watching kids grow up. One of my nieces just graduated from college last weekend and her brother graduates in a few weeks. I remember the day they were each born. I remember changing their diapers and holding them in my arms. Now they are starting their own lives and making their way in the world. My oldest niece has a 4-year-old son. My sister is a grandma. My grandma and grandpa have a great-great grandchild. I can’t imagine what it is like to be their age and see life go on and on. I recently went through a box of photos from the past 20 years, organizing them all, and it made me happy and sad at the same time. Happy, because I’ve had a charmed life with lots of love and fun times. Sad, because time is passing and things change.
It made me realize that things have always been changing and always will change. The only thing I can control is how I choose to spend that time. For me, it’s now all about love, compassion, integrity and fighting for the kind of world I want my nieces and nephews to inherit.
