Time - it's a kid thing

What do I mean?
If you are a parent, then you know.
Time is measured by how much your kids change year to year. They are the visual marker of time's passage.
Until they stop growing out of shoes and clothes, they keep you hopping, wondering and running.

On Sunday, my nephew graduated from High School. I remember when he was 2 years old (I have the cutest picture of him back then )and now he's 18. He's changed and grown and matured to become a very level-headed, handsome and funny young man. And he can do a stare contest like no tomorrow. lol.

It made me proud to be his aunt, and it astounded me that I'm so ....well...old. But that's what life's journey is all about. We don't stay static and kids insure that.

Hope your day is full of wonderful revelations too!

Thanks Brandy!
MAYBE, maybe I'll be posting more.

It's hard to balance it all.
I was surprised to see new options and I like playing a little bit with those... I'm glad you like the change!

Thank you for your comment, Rhea. The translater program I used told me you said:
""Water is always the same, but they are new every moment""

I don't know how close that came to your actual comment but it's an insightful thought.

Thanks!
