My daughters are turning fifteen today! No longer the constant need to be carried around and sweet kisses from my baby girls. Now its the constant demand for rides and help with eyeliner. My sweet little Isabella shown above when she was only two.
The girls were twelve in the photo shown above.
My son will be twenty this year and my mother seventy!! Oh my Lord, I want to stop the second hand and go backwards!! And the crazy thing is that I am getting older too!! No one ever prepares you for this aging thing, I guess if you knew it would be a bit scary.
People always tell you that the best time of your life is when your kids are little. For me it was difficult time and a bit over whelming. I had grown up an only child, with big plans to travel the world! My Mother was one of ten kids and although I was an only child I grew up surrounded by an extended family, lots of cousins and loving Aunts. Unfortunately I had to raise my kids with no family around and a husband who was a workaholic! If I sound like I am complaining I don't mean to sound ungrateful. I was blessed beyond my own imagination at that time. Even though my hubby worked long hours he was a generous and loving. I was lucky I was able to stay at home with the kids and be a full time momma. At the time I felt like I was just surviving. Looking back I wish I could have just enjoyed the time more. I wish they were still two and I could kiss those chubby chubby cheeks. I have been so blessed with these three little monsters. There is nothing in my life that I treasure more than I do each one of them.
Life is precious!
