That first time when you have to sit back and say times have changed,,

In a way, a bit of a melancholy day today. I'm 58 years old, and today spent most of my day buying and installing a home security system. The irony, in my mind, was this is due to just one little comment that our cleaning person said yesterday. First off, Im not lazy, but with Mrs. Koz having cancer and doing treatments, and of course my lil Tess, whom most of you can see if you research my posts, I needed a little help.
Back to the moment, Cleaning lady said yesterday, " so, next Friday I am off because you're gone?" we affirmed. The next question sent up every red flag in my brain. " Ok,, so you will have the dogs boarded and it should be quiet,"
Today I feel like my world changed with one statement, we used to leave and never even lock doors, even recently, and now today, this is what I feel I need to do.
You younger folks will not realize the impact of days like today for us who are a few years greater than you.

I guess what hits me more is the fact that today not only did I secure this house,, I also realize I am at an age where I am realizing drastic changes in the world since I was born. It is humbling.

Thanks for listening,
