Remembrance -

Our father died 38 years ago tomorrow, January 4th.  My brother sends me an email on it this morning, and I sit here now remembering those years so long ago.  I was 19, so I realize I have lived twice as long without my father on the planet as I have with him on it.  I allow some moments to reflect on the girl of 19, and see the woman I am now.

I know it is not good to dwell on the past, but it is certainly lovely to remember back and reflect.  I think that is another gift of the new year, an integrating of all the years of old.
