TITLE: The More Things Change...

I read an article by a blogging buddy today with great interest. She was sad because today was the last time she would be able to bring cupcakes for her child's school birthday party. With middle school less than a year away, she realized she had reached the end of an era with her children and was finding it to be a bittersweet moment. Joy that they were growing in size and in integrity, yet sorrow at the babies that were no longer tiny.

I thought about it for a bit, and realized she was right. It was the end of a special era - and the beginning of a new and exciting one. One full of sports games, graduations, special new friends, and maybe even a wedding down the road. And if that happens, it will shepherd in a whole new era. One that could eventually lead to where I am...the fun of babysitting grandchildren.

Which could lead to…you guessed it. Possibly helping the new mom by taking cupcakes to school once in a while. Or a field trip here or there. And, of course, homework help, again. Not to mention the fun of reading activities for grandparents and grandchildren (one of my favorites). It's an era full of fun and tears, laughter and sorrow, joy and pain. It's true what they say, you know. The more things change, the more things stay the same. And aren't we glad!

You said a great deal in a few words. This is an entry with which many grandmothers - myself included - will relate.

How true! Boy time sure does fly, but of thanks for the reminder that there are many things still to look forward to.

How time flies is something we seem to be saying the whole time.
Thank God for the fact that kids grow up and change and also for all those wonderful moms and dads who so loyally help their children when their offspring come along.
Lovely read with loads of wonderful inmagery.
