Black Holes and Revelations

Posted by on November 16, 2009

I had a terrible revelation last night…

My husband and I were in bed watching the Doctor Who special (yes, we’re geeks and I kinda love David Tennant so SHUT IT) and this particular story was set in the year 2059.

I didn’t give the year 2059 a second thought until my husband randomly noted out loud that our daughter will be 59 in 2059.

For some reason I was compelled to do the math in my head and I realized I would be 92 in 2059. And most likely dead.

I will be dead someday. Intellectually, I KNOW this. But for some reason it hit me particularly hard.

There will come a day that my kids are very much grown up and I won’t be here.

And I really wanted to cry.
