Wednesday - 03/24/2021 — For some reason I seem to be stuck in memories of the year 2014. This is the third entry in a row when I’ve brought back something that happened that year. Was it really only seven years ago that my grandson, who is getting ready to head off to college in a few short months, was eating his birthday breakfast at Einstein’s Bagels?
This time lapse has been almost of third of his lifetime, but it’s been less than a tenth of mine.
No wonder time seems to go so slowly for children and so quickly for us that are, shall we say, a bit riper.
His arms and legs have lengthened, his voice has deepened, his attitude toward life has matured, while I feel as if I’m still pretty much the same Grannie I was back then. My hair may be whiter than it was, and I’m an inch or two shorter than I was then, but I’m still basically identical. He, on the other hand, is a whole new being.
Life is amazing, isn’t it?
