She is our only child.
She somehow got away from us around the time she went to high school
and ceased to be our "baby."
I had every intention of keeping her home with us until she turned 35 or so.
It never occurred to me that someday she might have her own agenda and be able
to forge her own way in this world.
Wouldn't she always need me close by?
This is the last weekend that we, her parents, will enjoy that single title..Parent.
We'll have a new title to add....Grandparents.
How in the world did that happen and where did the time go?
She dressed up like a squirrel for a high school play and we were so proud of her performance.
We rode together all day on her first 50 mile endurance ride.
Tonight, I look back on all the memories, and between tears,
remind myself that life changes all the time.
I just didn't think it would happen to the three of us.
Except that now it's the four of us.
Sometime in the next few days it will be five.
Welcome, little Josiah Isaac. We've been waiting for you!
I'll bet your parents will write something like this about you
a few years from now...
We are so blessed.
