"Not too long ago, I would say horrible things to my Mom too. I felt torn between being a child and an adult. It's a rough age, but if you can just hang in there for the next five or so years, it will get better." I said. Hopefully the woman believed me. She talked about how she lives with her aging parents. The woman's daughter likes to watch TV and the dinner hour. The grandfather has a family rule that they must all sit down to dinner each night. Trying to keep the peace, the woman tries to delay cooking dinner so her daughter can finish watching her show. The sandwich generation must struggle to bridge gaps between tradition and modernity.
A little boy I see each trip on the Go Train walked over to me and gave me a candy. He was so sweet. Everyone who rides the train knows that little boy.As an adult, he will remember riding the train with his Mom. I am an adult and I will always remember riding the train with my Dad.
