When I was young and Christmas tree was tall.....
This old song from the Bee Gees popped out of my head recently.
Life is a matter of perspective.
When I was young, certain thing and issue were up most important to me like: Will I have a date on Saturday or will any one be interested in a tomboy like me etc.
Now it has changed. I worry when one of my sons has too many dates on a weekend while my other children do not seem to mind that they do not have any.
I worry if they would find a good spouse and be happily married.
And so I have began to pray for all my children's spouses that they do not mind have an ess for a mother in law.
I also wonder will I be accepted as a mother in law to them. Will I be a living hell for them like Jane Fonda, a monster in law?
Most likely, I will be travelling around the world drinking wine with Gino in Venice or coffee at the cafe in gay Paris so that I will avoid being a mother in law.
Life is a matter of perspective. To my students who are reading this blog, who are heart broken because their swine of a girl friend has walk out of them all I can say is : Time will heal.
Yes, I know how you feel for when I heard that phrase when I was 18 .
Time will heal. I retorted so what? I am hurting now.
Trust me. All I can say is Time will heal.
30 years later when you look back at issues that you hold dear at 17 or 18, you will realise that what an ess you have been.
You will smile and you will remember that once an ess has told you that Time will heal and it is true.
