“Nothing will ever be completely done.” – Anonymous

For those who don’t know, I’m a seriously uptight chick (and recovering perfectionist!) and definitely a work in progress by the grace of God. However, I think if I’d heard that quote or realized its truth before I was middle-aged things might have gone a lot smoother over the last decade in particular. I’m glad I was a young mom in my 30s as that was an awesome decade for me personally. I believe that’s because I was more able to live in the Present Moment with my husband and our son as we had so much rejoicing to do, as we had to wait seven years before he showed up.

The longer you have to wait for something you desperately want, then it is all the more precious when you finally receive it. Then, whoosh, time flies by and you can’t believe your son will be leaving home sooner rather than later. I’m reminded of that today in particular as a dear family friend turns 18 today and is quite the fine young adult himself (and I’m not just saying that because I love his mom so much!). So enjoy living in the present, remembering the past’s fond memories (like meeting this young man shortly after his birth), and looking forward to seeing what blessings the future holds for him. Happy Birthday, Justin!

    I have to remind myself to live in the present. Thank you. Our children do grow up so quickly. It is like a blink from baby to grown-up. Seeing our children succeed is such a gift for parents. Watching them mature spiritually is an even bigger blessing.

      Ditto! Thanks for the reminder that watching them spiritually mature throughout their lives is going to be an even greater adventure than seeing them launch out into the world. Blessings!
