Growing Up...

I just had the strangest epiphany of my life.

I'm watching Benjamin Button with my family, and one of the characters said, "When I was a boy I used to love to wake up before everyone else was up, run down to the lake, and watch the day begin."

I thought to myself, "I'd like to do interesting things like that as a child." Then I thought, "Wait, I'm not a child anymore. Where'd it go?"

I've never before experienced a feeling like that before. To tell you the truth, I never want to experience a feeling like that again.

Welcome back.

The kids and I just saw that movie last week. Where did it go? Slipped away, as time always does.

I like the line so aptly put,"You never know what's coming for you."

I really enjoyed so many aspects of that film.
