Ch ch ch cha changes...

Oh yeah, the times they are a changin'...What happened to my babies? What a whirlwind! Where is the rewind button???

"September 11th, Mom." That is Kayla's due date. She had her first visit yesterday with the doctor. Woops! I forgot to tell her about that. She hadn't been in that position before! She had been reading books though, so she wasn't traumatized. Plus the Lord provided her with her friend's mom for a doctor. ~So I am off the hook for that one! And if you think I am a bad mom not having her in that position before... Well, please keep that opinion to yourself! I am not the doctoring kind. I grew up on a farm. With lots of kids. We only went when absolutely necessary and I have kept that practice all my life. It's worked well so far...

Today, my baby had his golden birthday. Eighteen. So my oldest baby is having a baby and my baby is a big boy...all at the same time. We had a wedding in September. We have a graduation in June. We have a college drop-off in August. And a baby in September. (can you see my eyes crossing behind my new reading glasses?)~lol!

I took balloons and candy bars to school today. He happened to be in study hall playing chess with a dozen other boys~most of who are in choir with him. Guess what!?! They sang "Happy Birthday" to him in spanish! I left feeling like I was the one who had a treat!!

I am attending everything I can at the highschool.  I only have until the end of May...then this chapter will be over. *sniff*....
Changin...

Oh Kathy...I'm there with you...at least in part. With Chris being the same age as your son, I see the ending of some things ushering in the beginning of others. Holding on to memories and moments while embracing all that lies ahead.

Walking a similar path and thankful for your presence beside me along the way,
Joy

It's amazing how things just keep changin'. There's a season and purpose for everything. If we can only keep perspective and enjoy each of them!!

Hmmm...we're on the verge of some big changes at out house too. Our season is different than yours, yet we're going through some similar emotions.

It's cool how God uses others to remind us that we're not alone, and to make the most of each day. ;) Thanks Kathy!

I have walked where you are walking friend. My heart goes out to you as you get used to all these changes in your life. I wrote about it awhile back here:http://robin-robinznest.blogspot.com/2008/08/changes.html

I think you will relate to my words. I'll be praying for you!
