"We seem to have reached the age where life stops giving us things and starts taking them away."
- Jim Broadbent as Dean Charles Stanforth in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
I'm not a fan of almost any film that is connected to Steven Spielsberg. I didn't catch the Raiders series with Indiana Jones when it was in the theatres. Today a couple of the films were on cable and I watched one. When I heard the quote that is the lede for this post, I shook my head.
Life is always giving. It is also always taking but I want to focus on the giving with this post.
I have lost my mother, my father, both sets of grandparents, all my aunts and all my uncles. Yet, I am not alone. And new faces keep arriving on the scene.

My two granddaughters with another on the way are, for me, life's way of saying the giving never stops, nor do the smiles stop coming.
