Boy its been a while.

Today would have been my Mother’s 81st birthday.  A few weeks ago it would have been my Dad’s 81st birthday.

Amazingly and sadly they have three grandchildren they will never meet.  The likelihood of some of my wonderful children seeing the dawn of 2100 is compelling.

If you had asked me 10 years ago if I were going to have more children I would have given you a funny look.

7 chicklets ranging in age from 27 to age 3.  And every one of them is a unique, kind, loving, intelligent, sentient kindred spirit.

In this age being a ‘kid’ isn’t easy; being a young adult isn’t easy, and being a marginally good parent isn’t the easiest of tasks.

Maybe it should be easier, but in looking around society – it isn’t.

My late father told me more than once that he ‘loved his five children equally according to their needs.’  That is some profound wisdom.

Throughout any fog or noise I may experience in my daily journey  nothing can touch the joy of parenting.

Mom and Dad we all miss you and love you.
