As the world turns…

18 Sep

Today Adam and I ended up meeting Pop for lunch.  By pure fluke, we ended up eating at this place – mainly because it is the only place nearby that serves the kind of food that Adam eats.

It is a lovely little restaurant just down the road. It opens up onto a courtyard that is wonderful for Adam to play and run around in. But today was a cold and miserable day, so we sat inside. In one of the booths.

Adam had fish fingers and chips for lunch. Toni, the waitress served us. I asked about Wi-ann. The last time I was there Toni also served us. That time I also asked about Wi-ann. This time Wi-ann has had her baby. The baby is already 4 weeks old. Since that time, another little life has come into this world. Welcome to the world Jade. It amazes me how the world continues to turn, despite me wishing I could slow it down. To freeze moments in time.

Everything in there was exactly the same as was. And yet, the world has turned a little, and nothing will ever be the same as it was before.

    Sounds like a great little restaurant. Yes, we are all being propelled forward. It is amazing how it keeps chugging along.

    Sigh what is the saying “Time waits for no man” The seconds tick by, the minutes, the hours, the days, the weeks, the years……… pretty soon I will be a little old lady at this rate haha…hmmm not so funny when you think of it like that. Well until then lets hold onto the sun rays and moon beams and make the most of today!

    It’s weird how sometimes life stands still for us and all the while it keeps on movijng for other people. The cafe looks devine! 🙂

    We love Chaplan’s too and can’t wait to go back to Sunday lunches again when Sarah is a bit older.
    I agree with sleepyjane.. it’s almost unfair that life seems to just carry on regardless when one is in crisis. I used to often feel that way when stepping out of the hospital each day after visiting Sarah.
