As I reach my "4th" quarter in this crazy world called life, I reflect on it as being "in line." I am not in the front of the line as I was back in 1947. I am not in the middle of the line as I was in 1987. I am nearing the end of the line.
I cannot move forward, I cannot move backward. My place in line is set, and I wait my turn, not knowing when my number is called what it will bring!
I cannot change my number, we ALL have one. I prefer not to know what my number is, but, when it is called perhaps questions that I have had all my life will be answered, perhaps not.
We all have a number in this life, just waiting "in line" till it is called.
The past, the present will not matter any longer, the future...we are all waiting " in line."
