It was so nice to see you, I know we say it every time we get together but it's true, we really should get together more. This middle we find ourselves in isn't fun, nothing about the middle is easy; the young and the new are behind us and the relief and freedom of the old is still some time in the distance.
We are in the middle of a career and we wonder why we are still doing it and if there isn't something better. Have we made the right choices and have we learned to live with our regrets? Our marriages have survived tough times and we've settled into that strange "Middle" area here, too! We are in the middle years of our kids with all the upcoming struggles of teens but miss the babies and know that they will be adults in the blink of an eye. We worry if we've done enough or even if we've done too much. Our parents are aging and this new role does not quite fit either of us yet.
