Things Can Change

Posted: December 29, 2005

Change is here to stay. I was talking with someone the other day about their grandmother. Do you know she’s 101 years old! Can you imagine all that she’s seen? She was in the Great Depression, and now look at our economy. She was there before the Wright Brothers, and now look at jet travel. She was there when telephones and television began. Now we have satellite TV and TIVO, and almost everyone has a cell phone.


I’ll bet she’s also seen us change. Most everyone she used to know worked very hard, every day—just to make it. Back then, you did or you didn’t eat! Look at some old pictures. How many fat people do you see? Sure, some might be a little fleshy, but now? Just go to the mall and look around. Obesity is becoming generational. Experts are starting to call it an epidemic, and we’ve even begun exporting it to other countries!

It’s About Time…and Change!

Well, it’s that time of year again—can you believe a whole year has already slipped away? Where has the time gone, anyway? Now it’s time to reflect on 2005, and start setting goals for 2006. What have you done with the year? What do you have to show for it? Another few pounds?

As I move into my mid 40’s, it seems like time is moving so much faster. My oldest granddaughter’s five now—it seems like I was just rocking her to sleep as a baby. Now she’s helping my wife bake Chocolate Chip Cookies (not great for my diet, but oh so good…) and I just walked in and caught them sewing the other day!

Like it or not, time marches on, and if we look the other way, we might miss it! I’ve been learning to take time out for the moment, while the kids and grandkids are still around. Once the moment’s gone, it’s lost forever—unless you happen to catch it with one of those cool new digital camera’s (my wife and daughter have mountains of pictures). Even then, it’s bittersweet. You’d like to be there again, but the memory has to suffice.
