I think there comes a time in our lives when we ponder the changes we've made. Not only physically but in our personalities. As I grow older I realize that I'm more patient, more content, resigned to the fact that life is an ever changing ongoing experience and the happy AND sad memories will always be ever present. I guess it's those memories that give us wisdom and hope for our children and grandchildren. Learning from our experiences makes us better people and therefore we try to instill that in our families.
