I once read somewhere that the oldest child makes the rules, the middle kids are the reason for the rules, and the rules don’t apply for the baby of the family. It was certainly the case with David (we call him Pooh). In fact, had he been born first, the rest of us would probably not be here. As hard as my poor parents, grandparents and Dub, Della and I tried to control him, David, in his early years, was a holy terror.
Here’s what I mean.
Remember the old Doris Day song, “Que Sera, Sera?” In the song, Doris, as a little girl, wife and finally mother poses some poignant questions. I love the third verse:
“When I grew up and fell in love
I asked my lover, what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows
Day after day
Here’s what my lover said
Que será, será
Whatever will be, will be…”
I’ll bet the song is going through your mind now, right? Sorry if I created an earworm, but it’s a great song. Did you realize it won both an Oscar AND a Grammy?
Anyway, if you are anything like us (and Doris in the song) you’ve dreamed about your adulthood goals for a long time. And, as you get older, like us, perhaps you’ve realized that now is the time to do something about making your dreams a reality.
We found our “Que Sera” through housesitting, and here’s a few of the many reasons we love it:
Since my Mama’s passing in July my siblings have all bonded like never before. Mama would be proud.
One of the ways that the four of us (plus our four spouses) communicate is by group texting. We all post things that are happening in our lives from our four spots on the globe: San Antonio, TX; Rockwall, TX; Utah; and Vieques, Puerto Rico.
