Time & Memories

My middle daughter is getting married in just about 1 month now, that will take both my girls out of my house, leaving my 17 year old son still at home. I can't believe the time has slipped away so quickly from the moment they were each born. As I am getting older I treasure those memories of my babies growing up, praying that I don't forget. I have always been a huge photo taker of my kids and family and I am very thankful for that. I glance back thru photo albums now and tears of joy roll down my cheek, knowing that we give them the best childhood we thought possible. It would be so nice, to reach back in time and just for a moment grab that memory back and relive it, cherishing it all that much more. We have to rush thru LIFE raising our kids, taking care of them, seeing to their needs, just being mom and dad, then we turn around and they are getting married.

Time and Memories, thank God for the time he gives us with our familes. Thank God for the memories that I have of my children and husband for the last 28 years. I am more blessed than I deserve. Oh how I love being a mom and a wife, I have cherished this time that God has given me, now I will cherish my memories nowing that time is gone. Yes there will be more memories to make with grandbabies and things to come along the way, but my babies time is gone and memories is all I have. So take a moment today and look back on your memories, and if your Memories are yet to come, Grab hold of them each day, cherish them, love them, and thank God for them!

Lisa, your kids are so beautiful, Seth would probably like the word handsome better. They do grow up fast but remember its the grandkids you can spoil and then send home.

Lisa, your family is beautiful and your words are powerful and moving.

And I know you know what you have to look forward to but until it happens you just won't believe or understand the joy grandchildren will bring into your life. I only have one but I speak from my heart.

God is a pretty smart guy when he let's us have our babies back through our grandchildren.:)
