Time keeps on tickin....into the future.....

I feel like I have blogged this before..........where has the time gone? (LOL! Yes, I know I have!) I feel so out of control of time! We always get to the end of the summer and it feels like we just got out of school! This year seems a bit quicker, tho. Maybe it's because I enjoyed it more. Maybe it's because I'm older and everything seems to fly by quicker. Maybe it's because I have a Junior in High School this year and I want to hold on a little longer.......

I am just so weepy today! I always feel better when I blog. So, I get on here and the last blog entry was in January!!!!!!!?????? (sorry, Grandma!) I just had a sinking in the pit of my stomach. 8 months have passed by........so quickly! I barely blinked and they were gone! We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, milestones and memories. We have said goodbye to loved ones and hello to new friends. We have prayed and seen prayers answered. We have prayed and been promised God's grace. We have laughed so much that we want to cry.....and cried some, too. We finished yet another school year and are getting ready to welcome another.

So, as this school year begins.......Emma is a Junior, Hanna will be in Jr High for the last time as a big 8th grader, Lily will finish her milestone in elementary school as a 4th grader and Seth will no longer be the little man on campus as a 1st grader (which he is torn between sadness and gladness here!) We will have fun. We will laugh. We will cry. We will pray. We will grow. We will love madly. We will hope deeply. And time will march on.......

Here are some of the words to a song that I heard this morning. It touches my heart so sweetly and brings me to tears everytime! This is dedicated to my sweet ones....my peeps....my littles....my family!

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go.
And if your faced with the choice and you have to choose, I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed, I hope you keep on walkin till you find the window.
And if it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile.
But more than anything,
My wish for you is that this life becomes all that you want it to. Your dreams stay big and your worries stay small, you never need to carry more than you can hold. And while you're out there gettin where you're gettin to, I hope you know somebody loves you and wants the same things, too!
Yeah, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but you never forgot on the one's who love you and the place you left.
I hope you always forgive and you never regret, and you help somebody every chance you get.
Oh, you'd find God's grace in every mistake and always give more than you take!

Yeah, this is my wish!
