The end of an era

It is a strange feeling becoming the "older" generation.  With the death of my mother-in-law on Friday, December 2, Guitar Guy and I are officially the senior members of the family.  This year we have experienced mostly the down side of aging with its accompanying frailty and loss of independence.  Supposedly wisdom also comes with aging and I'd really like to know when that starts cause I could use some!

As I sit in the airport waiting to fly to Tampa for her funeral, I'm thinking that 7 AM is way too early to be having such heavy thoughts, especially on one cup of coffee. 

All prayers (if you are so inclined) or good thoughts are appreciated as our family waits to put 2011 officially behind us.

2009/2010 was that way for my family. We lost all but one of my parents' generation. It puts us closer to the top (and this is one instance I think being on the bottom is to be preferred).

I'm sorry about your mother in law. My heart is there with you.
