On several fronts of my life I have been recently confronted by the realization that I'm not capable, nor will I have time, to do everything. Probably, most people don't have to realize this. I guess I didn't really need to either, but I feel like I did. Bob is capable of business venturing that I am not, Marley is beginning to be beyond my skill in violin. I could try to keep up, probably be successful, but at the cost of other things. It brings my role as a support person into perspective. In You've Got Mail (a movie I watch every year around Christmas, I don't know why) the character Kathleen Kelly says that she "lives a small life. Small but valuable." That is how I feel.
It's a humbling and good feeling.
