time flies

Today is my 19th anniversary. Where did all that time go? I’m very fortunate in that they’ve been extremely happy years (other than a few downturns caused by unavoidable life events). But — almost two decades! Whoa! It truly doesn’t feel like it’s been anywhere near that long. https://i2.wp.com/www.pennymichelle.com/productpics/charms/timeflies_sml.jpg

How is it possible that my daughter will start taking driver’s ed in a month or so, and have her license all too soon?

How does my 11-year-old son have the right to suddenly be taller than his mom and wearing his dad’s blue jeans?

And, of course, how come if I still feel 23 inside (well, OK, not 23, but maybe 33), I don’t get to keep looking that way outside, too? 😀

It’s a wonderful day, even better than 19 years ago. Tonight I’m having dinner at a new and very eclectic restaurant and then going on a drive to look at Christmas lights. My family’s winter vacation starts at the end of this school day, and Christmas is just around the corner. Life is good.

  2. Tiffany,
    Happy Anniversary! Enjoy your special day!

  3. Time is strange. Waiting for a delayed train or being woken up every night by a newborn and time seems to stand still. Reach a reflection point (anniversary, birthday, etc.) and you wonder where all that time went.

    My son took me out to dinner the other night. I remembered the plump little doll in a blue romper suit. Today he is a middle-aged man, a professor in one of Britain’s top universities and a scientist of international renown. When I hugged him goodbye, I wondered where all that time had gone but felt immensely grateful that I had been able to see thus far into the story of his life.
