As the song goes Times are a changin’. Yet another year of many milestones. Last August I sent my oldest off to college. This August, I send another child. While my “baby” heads into middle school and my baby girl becomes a Sophomore in High School. I have spent the past few weeks looking through baby books and thousands upon thousands of photos. Getting them out for various milestones that are happening in my family’s lives. I am so happy that I have kept a visual documentation of the past. It triggers memories, good, bad and some real funny ones. I am reminded of moments sitting reading a book to a little one, seeing the first hit in baseball and snuggles with a departed grandparent. All these visual memories would do me no good if never printed.
I am reminded while looking through these photos, that times do change. Good or bad, it all adds to experience. Preparation for my children to conquer a new step in life. And seeing these photos reminds me that there is a lot of good. And we can face new challenges. And we grow. And we survive. Life is good. So bring it on!
