I love this song. It was relevant
when it was written
and it seems timeless.
Come gather 'round peopleWherever you roamAnd admit that the watersAround you have grownAnd accept it that soonYou'll be drenched to the bone.If your time to you Is worth savin'Then you better start swimmin'Or you'll sink like a stoneFor the times they are a-changin'.
Come writers and criticsWho prophesize with your penAnd keep your eyes wideThe chance won't come againAnd don't speak too soonFor the wheel's still in spinAnd there's no tellin' whoThat it's namin'.For the loser now Will be later to winFor the times they are a-changin'.Come senators, congressmenPlease heed the callDon't stand in the doorwayDon't block up the hallFor he that gets hurtWill be he who has stalledThere's a battle outsideAnd it is ragin'.It'll soon shake your windowsAnd rattle your wallsFor the times they are a-changin'.Come mothers and fathersThroughout the landAnd don't criticizeWhat you can't understandYour sons and your daughtersAre beyond your commandYour old road is Rapidly agin'.Please get out of the new oneIf you can't lend your handFor the times they are a-changin'.The line it is drawnThe curse it is castThe slow one nowWill later be fastAs the present now Will later be pastThe order is Rapidly fadin'.And the first one nowWill later be lastFor the times they are a-changin'.I am not quite sure of the how or why things happen whenthey do, but I think there must be a plan.2010 so far has been a year of joy and pain and heart ache.Having to deal with Ryan's death and both girls moving awayfrom home in the same year, is atremendous amount for my emotional self to deal with.Having Steve in my life has been an amazing bit of luck.We have already had so much fun and done so many things,that it is almost too good to be true.We have an upcoming trip to Ireland in September,which comes at a perfect timefor me.We have tons of things planned for the fall and winterat Krannert.I was able to spend a wonderful time with my Dadand my sister and my brother and his wife in Ireland.I enjoyed an impromptu 3 day vacation with my sisterand niece and great niece.I have good friends who I will definitelybe spending time with.I have so much to look forward to this falland the new year.Ryan is with me always, sometimes more than others.My mom is with me too.My girls will be in touch and I will get to visit.While my time is definitely changing,I plan to make the most of it.
