Time Marches On

Time what an empty vapor 'tis. Here today and gone tomorrow. Time marches on.  All these come to my mind as of late. Time passes so swiftly, and yet we don't even know it until we look back and see how much has gone by. Ten years ago we were told we would not have a baby, but God is perfect and good and blessed us beyond measure with a beautiful, happy child that is more blessing than we certainly deserve. Looking back, it doesn't seem as though it has been ten years.  I just can't believe that he is now school age and yet it seems not so long ago that he was a tiny baby we held in our arms in a football hold to soothe him. It's amazing to me as well how much has happened in those ten years.  The trials, the tribulations, the joys, blessings and sorrows have been abundant in this time as life is just that way. I'm ready for a new chapter in my life, and waiting to find out what will unfold in that chapter.  Now, though, I will look back and see where we've been and hopefully learn a lesson or two for the next ten years to come.  Hopefully those ten years take more than a day or two to pass by.

Happy birthday to my precious baby who is really not so much a baby anymore.
