I had a nostalgic moment today. As I rode the car through my beloved city's familiar roads and places, my thoughts drifted away towards years past... to beloved faces- some forever gone, others now estranged by life's twists or the long separation- to sweet days and memories of childhood, to simpler times. Not that life was a fairy tale then, but time has a way of polishing the good and blurring the bad, don't you think?
As I remembered, I also realized these days were long gone, never to return. I felt a knot in my throat and my eyes wetted. I can't turn back the wheel, but I can and will make every day left count and every beloved feel counted. This I vow.
