Did you ever Imagine?

I had a family session recently, where the parents had gone to college with me (back in the day).

It's fun to reminisce about those "days" and that time in my life brought forth incredible life long friendships...it's probably the last point in my life that I can remember such a drastic difference between "then & now"

I asked the dad of this particular session, "do you remember college much? do you remember what you felt and thought about back then?"  We laughed and quickly chatted about it all and then I asked him, "did you ever imagine THIS?" as we stood there watching his kids laugh and run all over the park.

It's not that we all don't imagine "good" things for our lives in the future...but, I think it's also telling that it seldom unfolds exactly how we may have pictured...and, in some cases, it actually turns out better than you ever hoped or dreamed...

I don't think any of us could properly imagine, back then,  the fierce love we would suddenly possess for our children.  The  typical "idea" of a family included the sweet little house, the 2.5 kids and a great spouse...

I know that I didn't understand the energy it would take to keep up said kids...nor a lot of other things...

but it's reassuring to me that I also know that most people wouldn't trade reality for their imagined picture for anything!

I grew up in a neighborhood where you could reach out and touch the house next door...It never crossed my mind that I'd be raising 3 daughters, out in a more "country" environment where tractors are plenty and sidewalks are nill...

We don't have "trick or treating" in our neighborhood...or at least the "regular" way of doing things...

Basically, everyone gets on a tractor trailer or truck or golf cart or 4 wheeler or whatever you have...

The people drive down their longgggg driveways and sit, waiting for everyone to pass by...where they hand out the candy...

It's crazy and fun and again, I wouldn't trade it for the world!
