My daughter's 5th year high school reunion is Wednesday. It seems to me my 5th year high school reunion was not too long ago, no way 28 years ago! I can clearly picture my high school classmates, the desks, the cafeteria, the teachers. I really don't believe I was in high school that long ago. I do not think my kids can even imagine me ever being in high school.
My birthday was this past weekend. The boys at home made me thoughtful, appreciative cards. Inside the cards the message included their sentiments "And for 51, you do so much!" Their perspective is that 51 is so old! My perspective is that life is just starting.
