Thoughts on Life

The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another.  ~James Matthew Barrie

Allow me to indulge in some of my baby boomer thoughts for a brief moment, okay?

In my twenties I thought I had my whole life plotted out. I’m a planner, what can I say? It sure hasn’t turned out like I expected. Not. At. All. But it’s a good life, I’m very thankful for that.

I have an amazing, caring husband and 5, count ‘em, FIVE boys. Never thought I’d be the mother of five boys! I have The Love Nest to escape to. My photography, that I took up after college–but let drop after the boys were born–has taken me in new directions I’d never imagined. This blog has been become such a tremendous part of my life, along with all of you, my blogging friends.

Life doesn’t follow our carefully planned out course. Our kids throw us curves. Life will push us towards paths we had no idea were even there. Bad stuff happens. Good stuff happens. The book of life we thought we were writing turns into a whole different novel. I wonder where the next fifty years will take me?

John Lennon said that life happens when you’re busy making other plans.
I already feel like I need another week’s break from the blogging and computer. When that happens, I often hold a giveaway and just leave it up for a few days.
What that has to do with your rumunations, I have no idea. But I’ve had a lotta coffee and I’m just rambling.

Very well put. I don’t want to know what lies ahead, but I’m game :)

I think my life is rewritten each day, and I love every minute of it. My son has 5 sons! 3-13 years of age– Each day is a miracle and the beginning of a new chapter with them. What joy!

Every day is a page to be written, cliche but true…

I just follow the path for the next adventure and I know it will be unexpected.
