I gotta mark this one down as “The Times They Are A Changin’. A couple of years ago we celebrated both Candis’ and my birthday at Bob and Jan’s place in Simi Valley where Cami was also in attendance. It’s very special for me when both my daughters are around, so I was having a great time. At some point though Candis came up to me and said, “Wow, Dad you’ve gone through some pretty big changes huh?” When I asked what she meant, she told me that she noticed that her little sister (19) must have a magic wine glass because it was never empty. She then went on to say that she remembered once being at a party with me where I asked her what she was drinking. When she told me it was white wine, she claimed that such a horrified look came over my face that she was forced to say, “Dad ya gotta lighten up, I’m 35.”
SOME OTHER THINGS THAT I’M PONDERING...
Positive things may feel good, but it’s not a learning experience.
