This is one of my favorite pictures of my 3 kids. It was taken 2 years ago when my children were in school in 3 different states. Dave and I had worked very hard to put this day together so that we could spend time together as a family. My son is in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M and we were all so excited to finally meet up with him that day!
You know, it wasn’t that long ago when I remember watching all 3 of them in elementary school talent shows, middle school band concerts, and a myriad of high school sports. Where has the time gone?! Such precious memories that will remain in my heart forever.
I’m continuing to learn that the seasons of a mother’s life are ever changing. Sometimes change is hard, but we must embrace it so that we can receive the many unexpected blessings ahead in our journey of motherhood. This past year in my life, I’ve experienced quite a few changes. My oldest daughter, Rebekah, was engaged to a wonderful young man, graduated from college, and was married 5 months later. My youngest child, Leah, graduated from high school and started her college journey. So, I became an empty nester and a mother-in-law within 2 months! Talk about change!! Meanwhile, my son continues to mature into an independent young man. He’s just received his Senior Boots, which is a huge tradition at Texas A&M University, and we are so proud of him.
Whichever season you’re in with your children, I encourage you to soak up every minute and find joy in each moment. Our little ones grow up so quickly! One minute we are watching our little girls dance in dance recitals, and in the blink of an eye, we are watching them walk down the aisle on their daddy’s arm. Happy Mother’s Day, my precious friends!
