It seems like only yesterday I was coming home from the hospital with a tiny little special package. I was 18 and he was "just born". Today he is 17 (almost 18), already done with high school, and on his way to college. Children are a special gift from God that always seem to grow up way too fast. It's a bittersweet moment for me because he has become an independent responsible young man, but I miss the little boy that depended on me for pretty much everything. I am proud of him and still praying for him. I guess I will be for the rest of my life. It comes with the territory. Prayer keeps me sane. I too depend on God to protect my children and guide them in the right direction.
Although I still have another little boy to take care of, I feel even my time with him is flying by. He's 9 and already thinking about being in high school! (Stopping now to take a deep breath and a sip of my coffee)... Time waits for no one. Ain't that the truth?
Congratulations to my sweet baby boy who is now a graduate...and to all of the Class of 2013...may God continue to bless your lives and guide you to becoming responsible young men and women!
Do you have a little one that is growing up way too fast? Enjoy every single moment you have because they will be all grown up before you know it!
