    Due to the recent weeklong departure of my two younger sons to Scout camp, this song (100 Years, by "Five for Fighting"), is weighing heavily on my mind today. It's beautiful and bittersweet, much like parenting. Mostly, I'm very much at peace with my role as a parent... Until I start thinking of the day when I'll have to say goodbye to my sons, as they venture off into the great big world to begin a new life on their own. Normal? Yes. Easy for a parent to accept. Never. Here now, is the song. A longtime favorite of mine.
    Blessings,

    100 Years
    by John Ondrasik/Five for Fighting.
    I'm fifteen for a moment
    Caught in between ten and twenty
    And I'm just dreaming
    Counting the ways to where you are
    I'm twenty two for a moment
    She feels better than ever
    And we're on fire
    Making our way back from Mars
    Fifteen there's still time for you
    Time to buy and time to lose
    Fifteen, there's never a wish better than this
    When you only got hundred years to live
    I'm thirty three for a moment
    Still the man, but you see I'm of age
    A kid on the way
    A family on my mind
    I'm forty five for a moment
    The sea is high
    And I'm heading into a crisis
    Chasing the years of my life
    Fifteen there's still time for you
    Time to buy, time to lose yourself
    Within a morning star
    Fifteen I'm all right with you
    Fifteen, there's never a wish better than this
    When you only got hundred years to live
    Half time goes by
    Suddenly you're wise
    Another blink of an eye
    Sixty seven is gone
    The sun is getting high
    We're moving on
    I'm ninety nine for a moment
    Dying for just another moment
    And I'm just dreaming
    Counting the ways to where you are
    Fifteen there's still time for you
    Twenty two I feel her too
    Thirty three you're on your way
    Every day's a new day
    Fifteen there's still time for you
    Time to buy and time to choose
    Hey fifteen, there's never a wish better than this
    When you only got hundred years to live
