How Did That Happen?


So age is just a number?  My current “number” states eligibility for SS. Whhhhaaat? My son, Ry, asked me, “Ma, how did that happen?” I chuckled. Isn’t that the question of a lifetime? Where does the time go? Seriously. I cannot believe I’m well past half of my life.

I told him I had no idea but that I was thankful for each and every sunrise.

Obviously, I cannot remember when, where, how or who took this baby picture. I only know it was a very long time ago. The span between then and now is also a long time. Do I remember all the years? No. Heck no. I remember many milestones though. Especially the birth of both sons. How in the world are they both now in their 40’s? HOW? How in the world am I a grandmother of four and the oldest is nineteen? HOW? HOW? HOW? I mean, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, let alone grow old-er.

Time stops for no one. God knows when our time will stop. For Him I am thankful. He gives life. He gives the sunrises and sunsets. He offers His hand in all things wonderful—all around us, daily.

So, as another birthday is in the not-too-distant future, I want to thank all those from the top of my heart, who have and will celebrate with me—my God-given day of birth. I want to thank all those who reign in every single year filled with hope, joy, love, fun, smiles/laughter, with me. I have much to be thankful for—past, present and future gifts. Gifts I call family, friends, and health.

I love you all.

Many blessings,

Chrissy D. <><

This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

    Oh my goodness… How did this happen indeed! 10 years ago I became a grandmother and couldn’t even say the word at first. Lol. I embrace it now, and it’s a good thing since I now have nine and counting.

    “I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.” Funny, I say that every chance I get. And it really is true, I have no clue.

    It’s amazing how quickly the years fly by, isn’t it? I blink, and another week is over. I blink twice, and I’m flipping the calendar page to a new month. The speed at which my life is zipping along makes me aware of the need to treasure the moments and those in my life who make them special.

      Isn’t that the truth, Keli? We most definitely need to cherish the moments we are given. Thank you for visiting me here. God’s blessings.
