Anniversary

Thirty-one years ago I would never have guessed

that the degree I was working my ass off for would be worthless

that I’d have a baby granddaughter a thousand miles away

that I’d be moving my youngest into his college dorm in two weeks

that I’d spend my days talking to dogs

that I wouldn’t have a tan, but still wouldn’t have a wrinkle

that I’d have lost so many people I loved

that I’d have no idea what was coming next, but be okay with that.

    1. Thank you! I suspect there are a lot of people out there like that. Who REALLY knows what they want to spend the next fifty years doing when they start college at 18??
