I thought it would be fun to take a look back 1 year from today. Never would I have thought last year on 1/17/12 that 2013 would bring me a granddaughter. My life has come full circle! A double blessing from God!
Here's my family today:
ONE YEAR AGO:
I caught the last 5 minutes of "A Baby Story" today and it made me cry :(
The family had just given birth to their 2nd daughter. It showed the dad, mom and their 2 little girls just enjoying life.
It brought me back to 20 years ago or more when we had our 2 little girls. And I cried and cried! Oh to hold that baby and snuggle that 2 year old....my heart aches for those days.
Yet, I am no longer the young mom to babes or toddlers but the older mom to adults and teenagers.
Back then they were always with me...now, I've got to schedule time with them.
Then I had no time for phone calls...now, everything gets put aside when they call to chat.
I've gone from wiping bums to helping plan weddings...
I try to enjoy what is now and not wish for years gone by....then something reminds me and gives me that longing once again and my heart hurts and the tears fall.
Walk with me....but bring the tissues !
