We were both just about to get ready for bed last night around midnight when the phone rang.
I wondered who on earth would ring at such a time but found it to be Tom our Grandson, a little the worse for wear as he had been to a wedding and it was of course New Years Eve.
He wanted to wish us a happy new year and told us that he had had a premonition that we were going to live for at least another 10 years
That would be fine I told him as long as we are still in fairly decent shape. It takes Tom (big one) to 87 and me to 81, easily possible but we don't want to be ga ga and immobile.
My heart went out to him and it actually upset me a little to think that he had had this on his mind.
I told you in a past blog that we were close and I think it bothers him to think that we might not be here forever.
I feel for him and remember when I was younger fearing death for myself or anyone else but as we age we come to terms with the fact that we will depart this wonderful world one day. Anyway, we had a good conversation and a few laughs and I hope that he felt a bit better by the time we said goodbye.
On a lighter note, I was given this tear off Zen calender by my youngest son for Christmas. He knows that I like quotes and meaningful poems, there's a new quote each day and I know that it will give us a good start to each day.
Also today, I'd like to wish all of my fellow Bloggers
A HEALTHY, PEACEFUL 2017
and thank you all for taking the time to read my ramblings.
