Growing Up

My is oldest son is now 9. How fast the time is going. I've never taken for granted each moment with my kids. Losing a child to cancer will teach you that VERY difficult lesson, I will say I enjoyed every single moment I had with Jordyn. I don't know what it is about Jacob being 9 that's so huge to me, maybe it's because it's the birthday can remember VERY clearly myself and remember even saying "next year I'll be in the double digits!" and that seeming like such a big deal and I can even recall my mom getting choked up. I kept finding myself all teary eyed. To think in a blink of an eye the next 9 years will fly by and I'll be looking at an 18 year old young man. I want to cherish everyday. I want the next 9 years to go a bit slower than the first ones have went. I don't want a single day to be wasted. Oh how I pray I don't wish away any days with any of my children.

This time is all too fleeting and in the blink of an eye these days will be gone.

It does go by so fast and i don't want to wish any time away either...but we have our moments:) I just blinked and my oldest turned 10. Wow. Holding onto every moment I have with them.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Lovely post. They do grow up so fast. My oldest will be 6 this year and I can't even believe it.

My son is turning 9 this year and I can't believe how fast time has flown. It seems like just yesterday I brought him home from the hospital. It doesn't help that my baby right now is going to be 7 either.
