I was a 27-year-old with no prior experience and no training, yet they released him into my care. They checked his little ID tag and just handed him to me, as if I knew how to care for him. What were they thinking?
His birth was just a little while ago, wasn't it? Wasn't it?
Oh, no. The calendar doesn't lie. It was 20 years ago today.
And that old adage rings in my ears:
The days are long, but the years are short.
