When I look back at almost 18 years ago when I first became a mom I knew that time would fly but I really had NO idea. In March my oldest baby will be 18....in June she will graduate high school....and she is already making plans to stretch her wings and fly.... I am filled with emotions about that.I so want her to live a full well lived life with what she wants to do and I so want to roll her in bubble wrap and hold her hand as she crosses the street. I have talked to her about travelling...see the world... go on a missions trip.... before she goes back to school and tries to figure out her career...live some! I know that all do not agree with that and really I don't care... I want my girls to live some... I want them to experience what the world has to offer...to travel...to go on a missions trip to a 3rd world country and gain some perspective... not live my life but be able to figure it out and know themselves... you can always go back to school! I have a few family members that have gone back to school in their 40's and 60's even!! I don't feel you have to have it all figured out by the tender and confusing age of 18!!
Meanwhile I will try to keep us together as much as humanly possible and with an all female household...well thats challenging to say the least! sisters are a very complex relationship! I know we won't all be together under the same roof forever and this leaves me with questions about where I will be when they are all gone flying on their own?! but thats a long time off yet....but I know just how fast that time goes!!!
