Sweet 16

Today is my oldest son’s 16th Birthday!  If only we could slow down the clock!  It seems like it was just yesterday that I brought home this 10 lbs, 23 inch long bundle, without a clue about being a Mom.  Now he is a young man, filled with music, sarcasm and a joy for life!  In two short years, he will be heading off to college and I have to trust that I have taught him the skills needed to be a successful and compassionate adult.  If only I could press life’s pause button…just slow time down for just a moment.  Yet, the hands keep turning and the clock keeps ticking.  Don’t wait for the perfect day….embrace life. Make each day perfect and don’t take for granted even one moment…

I miss you the second you leave.

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

  1. A heart warming tribute to your son and I’m sure he is growing up to be a fine young man and you did a wonderful job. It is amazing how fast time is moving for all of us and it is even more a reason to make the most out of each day and to not take anything for granted.
    Happy birthday

    1. He drove last night alone for the first time! I was a worried mess! I cried like a baby when he pulled up the driveway! He looked at me and said, “mom, did someone die!?” 😜😂
