A 30-day blog project: Something Found, Something Written, and Something Made.
Love the illustration work of Kara Kramer.
Thing you need to know #1:
My mom had a big birthday last month. I was able to surprise her and arrived in the middle of her birthday party!
Thing you need to know #2:
On the airplane from Seattle to Denver I had been thinking of the amount of time we had lived in Seattle — seven years — and how fast it has gone. (Wes in high school – blink -high school graduation – blink – Wes in collage – blink – Wes graduating in just 10 days… so very fast!)
Because children probably always think of their parents as old, my mom at 80 seems, well, “up there.”
When I saw my mom at the party, I had a weird thought: How many “Sevens” (the number of years that have just flown by so fast) will it take before I am 80, like my mother?
The answer made my heart skip: Four.
Only FOUR “Sevens?”
I’ve been thinking about this for weeks.
Have a wonderful day!
