What a week!

This is B alseep in our huge bed.

This whole week has just been so weird. Well, I shouldn't say weird, I should say... it has just made me think. It has made me thankful for all that I have and really be aware of all that is going on.

As you all know Mr. Man was Christened on Saturday, then Sunday we had a party to celebrate the family! So, as I was driving home Sunday night, and I began to think of all the things that are going on in my life.

You know, getting to be a stay at home mom, having my baby turn 1 month old, having him Christened and now, tomorrow, turning 27. Not to mention, seeing all my family, I realize just how precious time is. I mean, my grandmother is getting so much older, it just breaks my heart that she lives so far away. Not to mention, my "baby" cousin being so much taller and more handsome. I mean he has been out of college for 3 years. EEK! We used to share bath time, now we share a beer. It is so bizarre how the world evolves.

You know, I look at my dad, who has always been my rock, and the one man I loved. And now, there are so many men in my life, My husband and my SON. It is like a ball that never stops rolling. No matter what happens, no matter what you do in life, that ball just keeps rolling and you better roll with it or get out of its way!

Don't you ever just wonder where the time goes? Why you weren't nicer to people, or more thankful for everything that you have? I wish I could say I wake up and say Thank You to the Lord above for all that he has blessed us with, but most mornings (these days) I am sleep deprived and all I care about is who is hungry, who needs a diaper changed, and do I have time to pee. I need to be more thankful! I think we ALL need to be more thankful. At least be thankful for the time you have with whomever you love, because who knows, it could just be the last.

Aw he looks so cute in your huge bed. And I definitely know what you mean about time flying and what have you. It's so weird how things happen so fast and you don't even notice.

It's crazy that what we do have is what makes us thankful- you are so right. We should take time to be more thankful, more often. When you think about it, life really is good!

Although the end of your post was a little morbid, you do make a good point. :)
