Writer's Block: Young and Old

If you could do so, how would you spend the day with a younger version of yourself -- where would you go and what would you do? Now that you're older and wiser, what advice would you give that younger you?

I sometimes feel like my 18 year old daughter, Ruth, is a younger version of myself. Same spirit. Same humor. Same thoughts, values, goals. Looks like my twin. I've even told her that if she had been alive when I was 18, we would have been best friends.

Strange.

My second oldest is my 'twin' in a lot of the same ways. My oldest is much more like my hubby, and somewhat of a puzzle. When they were teens, I learned to let him handle problems with the first, because he understood her so well, whereas I could almost know what the second was thinking. The rest of the group are more 'mixtures'.

So interesting to see our children grow and develop into beings of their own in addition to parts of ourselves!

I did have a friend who was just like my daughter. She left me when my baby was born. It's as if God replaced that friendship that did not survive such a change with a life-long relationship.

What a blessing to have a daughter for a friend!
