Feelings of Mortality

I really felt it last week when I was taking care of Henry. We were playing push feet on the couch, we were flying, and we were pretending to be asleep with baby Frank and the green satin blanket, we were full of joy and playfulness, then suddenly I realized I won't always be there. ooooh. It was a flash of sensation that ran through the moments of great joy. and passed. I talked to another grandmother, and she said it happens to her, too. Probably a secret club of grandmother's thing.

It is a normal thing. Sometimes I look at my g'kids and try to imagine their graduations and weddings and realize there's a good chance I won't be there.
