60, 31, Less Than 0

December 19, 2018

The older couple in the next booth paid their bill and got up to leave.

Did I hear you tell the waitress today is your anniversary?

Yes, sixty years ago today.

It’s our anniversary too. . .

The couple looked remarkably spry for a couple in their, what? Eighties? We wished them well.

Let me tell you this though, sixtieth is the best. It just keeps getting better.

My lovely wife and I are just past the half way point to the where the older couple is today.

Two of my children are married. Two of them are engaged. It struck me that here we are, the old, the middle aged and the young. We are each striving for the same thing. The older couple at Olive Garden shows that the path can go on for a long time. My lovely wife and I work everyday to make it work. And it’s working. The kids are at the beginning of the road. They are the hope of the future.

The future’s in good hands.
