more birthdays...and a uncommon occurence!


My children many years ago...

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!

Glad to hear that he is coming home. I know how hard it has been for him to be so far away. I did realize when my kids were small that time was flying and tried to enjoy it. LOVE YOU

Thank you for pointing out how I have to enjoy today. My kids are getting big really quick too, I still cant believe my son is in High School.
The ages/birthdays are pretty cool. Might not ever happen again.
Take Care

Time does fly by, doesn't it hon? Can't believe how old your kids are now, or mine - lol. Guess we've earned whatever gray hair we have, right?

Yes, they really do grow up fast. When your kids are little you just worry about the now. lol I feel like the younger we are in life the more we had to struggle. Hope you have a wonderful day too. Blessings, Janie
