Quote of Whenever - Side Order of Life

"You know my advice to you has never been terribly maternal so I'm not going to start now. But I just want to say, make opportunity for yourself. Don't jump on someone else's and go along for the ride because then you'll always be in the passenger's seat. And you, my dear, need to drive."

- Jenny's Mom in "Side Order of Life," the First Loves episode (aired Sun, 9/26).

Her mother's advice is exactly what Terrence and I chose for ourselves and for each other a little over a year ago. Funny how you can realize your own moments through someone else's ... even if it's just primetime TV. That generally explains the success of shows like "Sex and the City," "Friends," and most of the programming on Lifetime.

Terrence and I are not first loves, but in our current lives, I think T and I have found a way to have our cake and eat it, too.

Not a quote of the day, week or month. Just of whenever. Until the next quote that moves me.
