What Can Happen in 22 Years?

My oldest turned 22 today.
Is it even possible that time can go that fast?

 We've changed a lot over the years.  We grown up learned so much and have lived a rather blessed life.
We cheered and watched and were involved.

We pushed, taught and watched.

We experienced, laughed and cried.

 We bloomed and grew stronger.

 We had arguments, ups and downs.  We tested boundried and picked ourselves up when we fell down.

 We did it over and over again.  What a happy day, when you wake up one day and know that you did the best you could, you loved, forgave, and moved on.  Moose you have been great for your mother.  I have become better because I know you.
I've loved the last 22 years.  I look forward to watching the next 22 and hope to see you achieve the goals you have set for yourself.  Happy birthday son!


  1. Wonderful post. Time goes so fast and those trials and the good times are always learning experiences. You wonder how you survived and yet can see the Lord's hand in many ways. I know Kota will have a great adventure ahead and we wish him the happiest of birthdays!
