This was just yesterday! (not really!)
Well, today is Friday-- already! I know most people are celebrating the fact that it is Friday, hence TGIF was coined. But wait, wasn't it just Tuesday?
Just yesterday my daughter Ali was born...she's almost 20!
Not even two years later Chelsea was born, and then Hannah, Gavin, Chloe! And six and half years ago my baby--Rickie.
I remember talking to my Grandmother once, (not that we didn't talk at other times) and she said to me.."Carey, I'm old, and I have to tell you, I just don't know how this happened."
I knew what she meant--but, didn't quite get it. I get it now. I'm 48 and the number sounds sooooo old to me, yet, I don't feel any different, than I did in my twenties! Yes, I've learned a lot--gained experience, but the core person who I am is the same.
So, I'm 48 already and I got here pretty darn fast...will I blink and be 68.....78....etc. Probably.
I need to enjoy every bit of my life, because you just don't know what tomorrow brings really. When Rickie was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis--it was a total wake-up call. Enjoy all the time you have with your family and friends--plug in to your kids. Talk to them--get in their face and find out who they are! Not just as your child, but as a person, what are they really like?
I have to tell you...I have the most incredible children--their funny, smart, loving, compassionate, smart alecks, (sometimes) and you know I like that about them. Their not push overs...
I have to be the luckiest girl in the world! :)
Even if I am getting old!
