blank with expression.
As I’ve grown older, the world around me has grown larger.
That elementary school became middle school became high school became university became job pool.
That back seat, where I sat as my Mom drove around, has been replaced with seats at airports and on trains.
Those 10 kids I used to stop time with on the weekends are now the many I see in passing on weekdays.
That after school walk back home is now freeway traffic.
That block I’d play on growing up, where I couldn’t wander out of my mother’s vision, is now where ever I feel like. And no one’s watching me anymore.
A lot has changed.
So I’m thankful for those special instances where things have remained constant and familiar. And I’m humbled by the world that spins around me. Because whether I stumble through it or stand firm and let it all come to me, it will continue spinning.
