Thinking back....


Do you ever sit and think about when you were little? This afternoon, I was thinking back to when I was younger and how I use to day dream about how my life would unfold. All I could think about was how fast I wanted to grow up, and now that I am here there are days I wished I could go back being a kid. Do you ever have those days? I can remember my parents and other adults saying “Don’t wish that, it will be here before you know it.” Yeah right, I use to say to myself. Heck, I am an adult now and I am the one telling my son to stop saying the same thing. As we get older and life unfolds, I guess it is just a never ending circle of life. I now thinking about my older son’s future, and I have it all planned in my head. I can see him now, going off to college, getting a job, getting married, and having kids. Then again I wonder if it will happen like that, the way I have it all planned out. I know for me personally it did not happen the way I planned, nor the way my parents might have thought my life would turn out. I can say one thing though and that is that I am so thankful for the life God has granted me with, and I would not have it any other way.

My second son would say when he was a freshman in H.S. - "I'm outta here when I'm 18." And that wonderful country music song would come on on the way to school, "Your gonna miss this" - and it said what he wouldn't believe from me.

There are things I miss from growing up - like catching fireflies because there was nothing.else.to.do - and that was the funnest gig in town! Building card houses watching a Nascar race on a Saturday - because there was nothing.else.to.do!

No responsibility!

Thinking back is great for a short time, but I am so glad I am where I am today:)
