Life is like that, it chops and changes, and then life is full of ‘firsts’ once again.
You know what I mean. As a child and you go to school – the first day at school, the first homework to bring home, the first friends, the first exams.
Life is full of experiences and with those come all the firsts, scary, unsettling, unfamiliar, but all they are just ” firsts”.
When you get married that first year is the year when you experience your first birthdays in your own home, your first Christmas, your first anniversary, your first child.
Now that we have embarked on our new adventure we are beginning our year of ‘firsts’. We have already had our first Christmas and soon we will experience our first New Year. Each day I am watching as the weather and the seasons change marking in my mind again all the firsts that I see. I look forward to all the firsts that come along as we go from winter to spring, from spring to summer and then autumn back to winter.
The cycle has to go around, the changes have to be seen. All the experiences have to be experienced until the firsts appear to be no more.
But they never go away. Each season, each year, each decade, the firsts continue to pop up to surprise us.
Without the ‘firsts’ without the changes that life brings we would become stagnant and stale. Change brings ‘firsts’ and firsts bring change. Life is cyclical but ever changing.
I wouldn’t want it any other way!
