Just Thinking About My Life

Updated on September 29, 2012

My Life

My life and what it means to me.

I wake each morning and wonder where the years have gone.
They seemed to have passed by so quickly.
In the blink of an eye, 
I went from being young sassy and silly to middle aged,
with gray streaks in my hair, 
and a few wrinkles that were well earned. I am still active and busy, and work hard everyday just to get by and pay my bills.

My children are grown now.
My dear husband passed on. I did'nt think he would leave me so soon, but 10 years have gone by now.
I have grandchildren now.

Ya know they are the brightest light in my life now.
I am their Nanny, and I'm trying to show them the ways in life,
to see and believe in their dreams for the future.
I long for the days when they were so little, and I could cuddle with them,
and tell them stories about everything under the sun.
Perhaps the days of hot chocolate and popcorn are gone..

I woke up this morning and wondered where all my dreams for the future had gone.
I try not to have regrets about the past.
The "what if's", and if only's.
But never the less they creep into the mirror of my heart, and I wonder what could have been.
I ponder this now.
My children are grown.
My grandchildren are growing up to fast, and soon they will have outgrown their Nanny.
I wonder where my future is headed next.
I wonder if they will remember me when at last I am gone and laid to rest.
I will always be there watching over them, keeping them safe,wishing I could share in their lives.

      The years do pass by quickly. Everyone tells you that when you're young and it's like yeah, right. Then you get older and find out they're right. I'd love to have little children around again. My grandkids live far away enough that I don't see them as often as I'd like.
