There's a last time for everything, though many times we don't realize at the time that it could be the last time. I'm weird and sometimes I think about stuff like that. I did not know last Christmas in 2009 that it would be the last Christmas I would be spending with my sister living next door to me. How sad that would've been! Would we have cherished the moments more?
My son has a girlfriend that he really likes. He's not home much anymore, which is sad in a way. I know that is how life goes, but that doesn't make it less sad. I'm not ready for my chicks to leave the nest just yet but I guess I don't get to pick the time, do I? If I did, I probably would've picked age 16 or 17, but now that he's pushing 21, he's sweet again and I really like having him around.
So my point is . . . could this have been the last Christmas with him home with me? I surely hope not. But if it was, I had fun and I will cherish the moments . . . just in case.
