I was recently visiting my wife’s parents. I returned from a run through suburban New York. Groomed grass. Intimidating facades. I came home to stretch and begin the rest of the day. I glanced up on my side to framed photos atop the family piano. There were five. My wife proudly holding her graduate diploma. My sister-in-law accepting hers on stage, shaking hands with the dean. Their maternal grandmother looking right back at any onlooker as she sat in a stately manner in a simple armchair. My wife and I at her sister’s wedding. My sister-in-law at her own wedding. Happy memories. Important milestones.
it's a good point. Even though we strive for a unrealized future, it is good to reflect on where we've been and what used to be. It's comforting and also a reminder that we should prepare and expect to be different tomorrow than we are today. Things do change and the snapshot of today is fleeting. Thanks for the post.
