Liz was 20 on the 20th of October, Eric will be 24 on the 24 of October ... and my oldest Tim will be 27 on February 27, 2009...all in a row, not the same year...which would be truly an occurrence, but still something to mention.
My children noticed this, I would have never thought about it. There are days I think too much, lately I've just tried to enjoy the beauty of Autumn. My kids have grown up too quick. In a blink they are not children, but young adults. The above picture was when I was a single mom living in an upstairs part of a large house. I love my life now, but I still try and freeze time. Back then I wish I had realized how quick my children grow up. Life should be enjoyed and today I am making sure I stop and enjoy the now!
Eric is coming home in about a month. He's able to transfer to another store nearby. Being 5 hours away in Ohio and living on his own has become too much for him. He misses his family. I miss him.
I have a blessed life and it's full of amazing and wonderful people, places and things...hope you all have a wonderful day also!
