Mount Royal Park, July 2010
I saw my grandparents after 5 years. I don’t understand how I let it to get so long. It was a happy moment when I first saw them but seeing them after all those years, I realized how older they got. It was a slap in the face. It was an alarm going off. My grandparents were so young when they had my mother and I am the first grandchild. So, I was used to have the youngest grandparents as long as I could remeber. It is hard to watch your love ones get old.
Couple of months ago, I went to the hospital for a blood test and then there was a nurse talking to one of the patients. Both had knee replacement surgery and they were exchanging their experiences. The nurse turned to me and said: honey, never get old. I smiled and said I wish!
