“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in the quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.”

This year has been a year of change for me. My boy, that little bundle of sweetness, has turned into a young man. We're looking at 16 soon, he's been driving with a permit for nine months, he spends more time with his friends and less time with his mama...all the stuff that should be happening. It's exciting and new. It's scary and unknown. As he nears the end of his sophomore year I see the end in sight. While I know I will always be his mama I also know as he spreads his wings and flies further and further from the nest that one day he will fly away. I am so happy and excited as I see him growing and developing into a terrific young man and as he changes I have to as well.

(my light. my joy)

I am excited for our futures. As a family we are stable. We are rocks and comforters for one another. I always say "we are three." Forever we will be; however our three will look different very soon. 

So, this is my place to grow and change and learn and be.
