21st century grandparents – we are about 21 hours, 1,568 miles apart from our son and his family. I take a picture via our zoom connection as our son is helping his daughter read the book I just sent. She wears the T-shirt her brother has outgrown; from before she was born when they visited my brother in Louisiana.
Listening to music the other day that James Taylor song played: “The Secret of Life is Enjoying the Passage of Time” and I thought how spot on! Time is going to pass. We might as well enjoy the ride! 45 years have passed since the first time I came to Lake City; it was our honeymoon.
With so much gratitude we have been enjoying a cool, rainy summer. For us, living in the mountains can be like mostly being on vacation because living in nature provides a feeling a sense of calm. It’s a natural paradise.
