Girls Write Out
Sunday, January 02, 2011

Several years ago I remember calculating that my oldest son Justin would be graduating from high school in 2011. It seemed so far away. Eons away. The next year, I got a contract and I remember thinking it would keep me busy through 2011--an eternity away.

And yet, here we are. The first GWO post of 2011. Time just slips by, doesn't it? It seems like the millennium just rolled around, and now the first decade is already gone. It seems to go faster each year and I'm wondering if, when I'm 70, a year's passing will give me whiplash.

I hope you're all off to a great new year. I hope you'll stick to whatever New Year's resolutions you've made--I've made none, so I'm pretty sure I can stick to them. My prayer is that this will be a year of growth, a year of hope, and a year of all God's richest blessings for you and your families!

Wow, Denise, you have one graduating this year? How exciting! I didn't make any resolutions, either. Don't want to break anything else.

I LOVE the picture of the boys! They have grown up before our very eyes!

Time does slip away so fast. Yesterday, I was 16, and now I'm . . . not.

My New Year's Resolution? Not to make a New Year's Resolution. So far, I'm good. :-)

I couldn't believe how quickly time passed when our oldest son graduated in 2009. And now, our youngest will graduate in 2012...that's next year!!! Where does the time go? My memories of their toddler years filter through my head as they lean down to hug me.

I didn't make resolutions this year. Instead I wrote out goals and put steps in place to achieve them.

I remember an old DC Talk song - Time is Ticking away ... tick, tick tick ... yikes! Chloe turned 1last Wed. I thought that was bad - can't imagine having a kid graduating! :)
Happy new years GWO! :)

I know! 18 years is really not very long to take a human from helpless infant to contributing adult.
