Change

The one constant in life is change….

…I used to wake up every morning, look out the window and see trees and a slow country road…
…Now I wake up, look out the window and see a golf course, a busy highway and mountains rising in the distance…

…I used to drive to work along a flat stretch of highway….
…Now I drive over the hills and around the curves of a mountainous highway…

…I used to work a job from 8-5 every day…
…Now I work in 4 to 5 hour shifts at a part time job, still waiting on that full time job…

…I used to have an hour for lunch; a time to meet friends or leisurely run errands…
…Now, if I’m working during lunch time, I get a harried 15 minutes to suck down something…

…I used to drive home from work each day along that same flat stretch of highway…
…Now I drive over the hill and around the curves and watch the mountains get closer and closer…

…I used to talk and talk and no one thought anything of it…
…Now I talk and people tell me they love my accent, ha-ha…

…I used to be greeted by the wagging tail of a puppy when I came home…
…Now I’m greeted by that same wagging tail as well as the voices of my family…

…I used to eat supper alone, sitting on my couch…
…Now I eat supper with my family and we eat that supper at the table…

…I used to spend my weekends sleeping in and watching movies on my own…
…Now I spend my weekends traveling here and there, seeing new things and I do all of it with other people, not alone…

…I used to go to the movies by myself…
…Now; I have friends (and family) to go to the movies with…

…I used to spend my Sunday mornings in the nursery…always in the nursery, hearing a sermon and socializing with adults once every five or six weeks…
…Now I go to Sunday School and church service each week and I’m only in the nursery once every five or six weeks…

…I used to let my dog out to roam freely…
…Now I walk him on a leash every few hours…

…I used to live in Mississippi…
…Now I live in Virginia…

The one constant in life is change… I think I’m going to like change.
