Upon returning to my home after a visit with my 90-year-old special lady friend, Lola, I am recalling some of my late dad’s words to me at the NC beach house while he observed me with tons of family around, “Mitz, you are never going to be alone.”
He meant of course that no matter what happens to me in my lifetime, my family will be there for me.
And, I am thankful for that fact as Lola and I talked today in the nursing home.
It is not that I may not dwell somewhere like that, but I know that I know I will really never be alone.
Every single year now that as I age, I am so aware of how different life is now for us baby boomers from just one generation ago. I am constantly hearing or meeting someone whose life’s path is so completely different from what they ever anticipated.
