taking time to look back

Thursday 11th December 2014:

Today I went to my Grandma’s Flower Club lunch with her. I loved it. I loved being with her and her friends.

I spent some time chatting with one of her friends in particular and really enjoyed looking back at her life with her as she told me about all the places she had lived and the experiences she had had. I heard about this lady’s life in Sudan, Poland and Cyprus as she travelled and raised her family with her army pilot husband. It was fascinating. I always love it when older people tell me about their lives, as I love hearing their insights and hindsights. I find it humbling and challenging to hear their stories, and it gives me a fresh perspective on my own life.

Today I am thankful for taking time with someone older than me to look back at her life.
