I received a present on my desk this afternoon. A delivery from a the Sales Manager from Tan Tar A hotel. The present? A twenty year planner. Kind of a neat idea, I can see that in the year 2027 my daughter's birthday will be on a Thursday and she will be 27 years old. My 3 year old baby will celebrate his 22nd birthday on a Saturday.
My thoughts on how neat it is has been replaced by sadness and a yearning for the memories that haven't happened yet. In the year 2027 I will be 56 years old. Will I be retired? Doubt it.
So my message to the Tan Tar A hotel; Thanks for the present, but next time a five year planner would be great!
A quick word in the future to my daughter Riley. She'll celebrate her 21st birthday on Cinco de Mayo on Friday, May 5, 2023. Enjoy your night but you can bet mommy will be there to make sure you stay safe!
