The meaning of life, your life.


 It's funny how the things we think of as important, change over time. I think of what was important to us in our twenties, thirties and onwards. I text a friend this evening and asked what he was up to. At one time it would have been training for some sports event or getting ready for a big project. Sometimes it was for an extended trip to the other side of the world where he would live for two or more months.

 Tonight the answer is more important than any of the above things mentioned. He became a devoted dad very late in life to a sweet and very clever little girl. The excited answer was, "I'm helping my daughter bake a chocolate cake, the first time I've ever done that in my life!

As we age our priorities and goals evolve. Mine right now is to wake up every day.
