Life happens...

Having kids and seeing them grow up so fast is one of the hardest things I've been through... It starts with them as babies and all of a sudden they're little people with their own personalities and ideas. Of course it's really neat to see them living their own little lives and thriving, but it's bittersweet and as a mother I often feel torn about my kids growing up...
But the truth is that life happens and there's no changing that.. We will all get old and reach the end of our days.. some sooner than others, but that's the only reality we have to face...
As some of you may know, I work with the elderly and every day I see people that are nearing 100 years old.. it is so amazing what all these have to teach us and how much they have been through...
Out of all the messages I've heard, the most important one is that time flies and every moment is special and unique.  We need to learn to appreciate our friends and family because we don't know how long will be here and we often can't grasp the concept of time and how fast it passes.  LIFE HAPPENS and we need to enjoy it and make the best of it and thank GOD for every happy moment He blesses us with!
So please, hug your husbands, kids, mothers, fathers and most importantly share the joy of living!
