Time...



Log in to see fewer ads
Other day a friend ~20 years my junior said...

"Wonder what I'll look like when I'm your age?"

My response...

"You and your Wife have one year old twins, so you'll find out sooner than you think. It'll seem like ~5 years have passed when you get to my age, lol."

I'm thinkin' maybe we ditch this whole measuring of time thing altogether. It's kinda depressing.

Yeah, having kids really seems to 'speed up' Life. When they hit junior high, the years simply evaporate.

Age is just a number, I'm the person I was before, just in a 'weathered wrapping', lol. Time gives you perspective - thats a good thing.

aging didn't seem a real concept to me till we had kids. One day they're on your lap then all of a sudden they want the car keys. Cherish the fact they are little as it goes by in a flash.

Time steals -- looks, abilities, and friends, but it gives back experience and hopefully wisdom. Seems like most things in this life are a trade off.

And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.

The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.



Pink Floyd got it correct with this one,,,
