10 years

So much changes over time. You count down til your wedding day, then you're counting
weeks in your pregnancy, then it's counting how old your baby is, until they are no longer a baby!
Miah had his 1st birthday last Thursday, and I think I'm still in denial! I'm very glad he's growing big and strong (he even knows who Jesus loves! Just ask him...if he feels like telling you, he'll pat his chest--or yours!)
Next month Alex and I will celebrate 2 years of marriage. 2 years, but it feels like we've always been together. He's my best friend and I love him with my whole heart. In those 2 years, Alex and I have bought a house, became an Aunt and Uncle to our first nephew and niece, had a lil boy and we're expecting a lil girl.
In November it will be 3 years since Grandpa went home. In three years, I've gotten married, changed churches, had my dog die, got a new dog. I've made new friends and lost friends.
It's been 8 years since I've graduated high school. 8 years! Wow....just the thought makes me feel old. In that time they've tore down that high school and built a new one.
All day yesterday something was bothering me. I knew there was something that had happened on June 22, but could not think of what it was, until I was getting ready for bed. 10 years ago yesterday, my Grandma went to her Heavenly Home. 10 years!! I was alot younger 10 years ago! I'm not the same girl I was 10 years ago! At that time I'd just broken up with a guy, a *gasp* wordly boy from school. After that I dated and broke up with a couple more guys. Nothing really "wrong" with these guys, they just werent for me. They were guys I should have stayed friend with, and not "dated." Within 10 years many of my friends have gotten married and had babies. Some have divorced. There have been many births, and some deaths. But 10 years have brought us closer to His coming. Who thought 10 years ago we'd still be here? Who thinks that we'll be here for another 10 years?


  1. Wow, and I thought I was a retrospector! =) I have often thought of just how much things change in just 10 years time...it tends to boggle my mind when I go through the past years just as you have done here. Thanks for sharing!


  2. Thanks Ladies....I try not to "dwell on the past" but it's CRAZY when you think of how much as changed! And then of course, how things haven't changed! LOL
