I thought it would be like this forever…

I thought it would be like this for a long time.  My dad, alive.  My daughter, living with us.  My son, a cuddly baby.  Me, a graduate with a wider potential.

In such a few short years, this picture has changed. My father died.  My daughter entered adulthood and moved up north.  My son is a tall, athletic ten year old.

I though it would be like it was in this photo forever.

Still, it’s the love that stays constant and not the form.  We all change, and when I look back on this seven years later, I want to go back to that day.  To give longer hugs.  To tell everyone how very much it meant to me that they were here.
