Couple and marriage relationships are always a high priority in people’s lives. We all want to be loved. We all want to love our significant other and we like to read about how we can improve that relationship. We can read about it all over the internet.
Walking through the Phoenix airport a few weeks ago just put a smile on my face. I was there picking up my son from a week’s vacation back in Alabama and noticed large groups of people gathered in different areas with large “Welcome Home” signs and balloons.
With the birth of my 12th grandchild a few weeks ago, I found myself reflecting on our time here on earth. This little granddaughter came earlier than expected weighing only 3 lbs 9oz., but she is a fighter and soon was strong enough to breathe on her own. She was so loved by all who knew of her existence.
As we are all born on earth into families, we have the opportunity and given the gift of relationships. We might not think of it as a gift, but it is. Some of us shy away from these relationships while others run toward them. I am the kind that runs toward them and will always live among people. I love conversations and emotional attachments while others might like to live as a hermit.
My life certainly did not play out anywhere near where I thought it would when I graduated college. We all have those hopes and dreams when we are young and starting out in the world as an adult. It’s exciting and there is much hope, as it should be but where our journey takes us in life is many times a big surprise. No one plans a shortened life span of a spouse or child. No one can foresee what path we will find ourselves on as we live our life in our chosen careers and pathways.
