Growing Up

There is so much about you that I love: your quirky personality, your wisdom to always do the right thing, your courage to try something new, your loyalty to friends, your beautiful auburn hair and your fun-loving spirit - just to name a few. I can't believe how fast you've grown and how far you've come. You are a light that illuminates our home and touches our hearts.

I want time to stop, at least for awhile. I need to get used to the idea that you are really growing up....

My sons are the age now that I was when I lost my father...that perspective "gets to me" a lot of late!

They grow up so very fast...

It is hard learning to accept the fact that they are growing up....and faster than we wanted them too! It's bittersweet, remembering the past, enjoying where they are today, and looking forward to the future and who they will become when fully grown!

The love you have for your children and family is so evident in your posts......

Hugs!

BTW, check your yahoo mail!

The last two posts are wonderful Lori. I hope that I will be as good a mother as you....

You are my inspiration - as is my own amazing mom.
