That is a positive thing. Our lives continue to grow in love and joy. Friends continue to marry and have children. There is something warm about the optimism of being at the beginning. The optimism spreads to us who are on the down side of middle as well. The smiles. The talk of knitting and sewing. The books that need to be read to the next generation.
There is always a way of turning it into "the best time we have ever known."
