Happily Ever After (new series)

My second lesson from this week-end was what I experienced during our visit to a nearby college. We had a band concert at the University and honestly I’ve stepped on that campus maybe a handful of times in ten years. This particular visit afforded the family time with friends and the opportunity to have a picnic while waiting for the concert to start. We also experienced a nice gingerly walk around the campus. As I was strolling along with a friend and looking at my surroundings with a fresh set of eyes my friend said something about the good ole’ days. As I took that in, I realized again that memories are a great thing but, when we venture back in time we should learn something about ourselves.
As we strolled along, I asked my friend if somewhere along the line we have it all twisted?

Meaning did we take for granted the journey in an effort to get to the destination? She smiled and said I think sometimes we’re in such a hurry to get to the destination we miss the trip. When I was in college my only concern was wrapping up so I could get married so I could have children. Well I did all that and I hoped to have that Happily Ever After Ending. The problem is no one ever talks about what the Happily Ever After Ending looks like? What is one to do with the Spouse they acquired along the way, the Children that need attention 24/7 and where in that story do I fit now?
