I found this picture tonight and I'm at a loss for words because for the life of me I can't remember much about my boys at this age. Is this how it happens? They grow and you forget. They change and you don't remember how it was before. They grow out of clothes and you forget about the cute matching shirts they once wore.
My kids have changed so much and I still own that dress. I don't remember the last time I wore it, but I still have it.
I can't even remember if we knew about Amos and Story when this picture was taken. I've tried and tried to pull up the time of year this was taken (I know Fall, duh) and figure out if I knew that I was the mom to two more kids, or if I just knew of these two.
Time goes so fast.
They grow up so fast.
I still have that dress.
I can't remember when we took this picture.
Life moves fast.
Those are my deep thoughts on a Sunday night. What was your deep thought of the day?
It really is crazy how quickly life and our children change!! As I write this thoughts of planning my daughters wedding and potty training my foster son are running through my head. Along with thoughts for my dear friend whose 19 yr old son is dying of cancer. They are major mile stones in life, but all of them have such different meaning!! But as mom’s of these kids/adults we generally choose to live in the moment. It makes me wish I could go back in time and tell my 20 something self to enjoy my kiddos more!! Take way more pictures!! Write more things down!! Pray with and for my kids so much more! I am so blessed that God has allowed me to be a part of the lives of my foster kids, because He is teaching our whole family so much in this season of our lives!! Glad to see that God seems to be doing a bit of the same with you right now! Thanks for sharing such a sweet photo, and your thoughts! Because I don’t want to forget about any season of my life, but I know I’m guilty of it!
