I am so full. I already feel like I’ve been eating the whole week and tonight we had a huge family dinner to celebrate my grandparents’ 60th (!) wedding anniversary. So more food and family time. Now I am home again. Cat sleeping on my lap. Sipping a cup of tea. I am more than ready to go sleep. But first a blog. About growth that never ends.
One of the things we had playing in the background was a slideshow with pictures of the past years. New babies. Anniversaries. Weddings. From long ago to recently. Throughout the pictures you see the family grow and evolve. Tiny babies grown into small personalities. A young couple and now in the mid eighties. But growth isn’t just physical. It’s an emotional process. These pictures trigger memories. Happy ones. Sad ones. But they are all part of the growing together.
Then realising that 60 years as a married couple is a very, very long time. It makes me wonder if I will ever have that. I want to, but I don’t think I am getting married any time soon. I choose different ways of growth at this moment in my life. That’s okay too. But if there is one thing that I can learn from 60+ years of being together is that life is never boring. Also after all these years, there is still growth. It never ends.
