Perspectives change when things change
Your kid gets his liscence and suddenly you look back at all the carting around you did with wistfulness. A flood in the basement and all that stuff you couldn't part with because so much flotsam and you can't wait to get it out of your life. All the daily pressures and inconveniences get you down until a house fire makes you grateful for the mere existence of those you love.
Wouldn't we be wise to conjur up these moments to help us sort out our priorities every day. Things are changing all around us and we're moving to a future most of us can't imagine. Either we stay focused on what is really important to us and let that guide our choices, or we'll find ourselves grieving the lost time and opportunity.
