Life Marches On.....

Today, April 12, 30 years ago, I gave birth to my youngest. Oh my goodness, how times flies.
In the space of just over a week, we have celebrated 4 birthdays and one very sad event.

Life goes on. All 3 of my children are now in their 30's. It seems like only yesterday I was in my 30's, bringing up my own children and having a blast!

I remember in 1998, between May 30 and July 25, there were 2 deaths, 2 marriages, and 1 birth.
It was an eventful year to say the least.

May 30 - my Mom died
June 20 - my daughter got married.
July 17 - my grandson was born.
July 22 - Hubby and & I were married.
July 25 - my dad died.
That was some summer!!

And now here we are - 10 years later!

It really puts it in perspective to write it all down - busy year with happiness and loss.Take care.

My mom said nothing made her feel how quickly time passes quite like her youngest child's 30th birthday did. (last Nov.) Not becoming a grandmother, not college graduations for us--nothing compared to that last kid leaving his twenties!
