“The best laid plans of mice and men so often go awry.” – Robert Burns
I recently overheard a conversation between two young women at the coffee shop.
One was distressed by the fact that she wasn’t already married and having her first child by the age of 23, because she wanted to be done with children by the time she was 30 since that’s, well, you know, so old.
It made me smile. And it made me think of all the surprises life’s brought me … big and small … happy and not so happy. Things I could never have imagined in my wildest dreams … or nightmares … when I was 23.
