We usually have a whole host of people - family and friends - who come here together. This year there are just a few coming - and today it's just the 6 of us. The 4 from our house and my husband's parents.
Today I went for a walk with my mother in law and my kids.. as we walked I had a new realization that time is marching on.
My son is about to enter into his senior year. My daughter is a sophomore.. and my mother in law is showing some signs of getting older. It's sad to me that times have and are changing, and there's absolutely nothing I can do about it.. Like it or not, life is different now than it was 5 years ago, and it will be even more different just a year from now.
I pray I will enjoy every minute.
Cherish every opportunity to show those around me that they're loved.
Because they sure are.
