Wow! I can't believe our little man is SEVEN years old today!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get a glimpse into the future? Lately it seems like we've been gazing into a crystal ball. Although he just turned seven, Elijah will occasionally shoot us a look or make an expression that gives us a "sneak preview" of what he'll look like someday. At times like these all I can do is take a mental "snap shot" & savor the moment.
Earlier today, John asked Elijah what it felt like to be seven. His reply, "It feels like I'm 100, daddy."
To quote Ferris Bueller, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop & look around once in a while, you could miss it."
Today I'm reminded to take the time to enjoy the little moments. To cherish the toothless grins, the infectious laughs, the silly dance moves, the imaginative stories, and all the colorful works of art. Because, let's face it, you can't go back in time & experience them again. I guess that's why I do what I do -- to capture the memories so they'll last a lifetime.
Mommy & daddy love you so much, Bubby! Stay little for as long as you can! Happy birthday! Know that you are loved!
