Time Keeps Marching On

This week it seems that I've done a lot of thinking...

About time that is and how quickly it keeps marching on.

You see, Tuesday was my birthday, yet again it seems. It didn't feel like very long ago I had a birthday and here I am with yet another one. 365 days pass before you know it!

What did I do in the last three-hundred and sixty-five days? I don't really know, it all seems a blur these days. Is it because I'm getting older?? The saying is "Time flies when you're having fun" Maybe that's it, I'm just having too much fun. ha! Not sure that that's it either. Something to ponder for sure.
All I know is, I have so much that I want to do but it seems as though so little time. Do you feel like that too??
I spent the better part of my birthday reminiscing about where has my life gone. Not in a bad way mind you. Just thinking about what I've done with my life. Where has it gone. Every little thought included my kiddos, that's where my life has gone. Being a Mama to them. It seems like they were all just born, not the 21, 19, 17 and almost 15 year olds that they are today. I bet that I said it at least two dozen times this week to each of my kids, to enjoy their life, make wise choices and don't try to rush things, because before they know it they'll be sitting at my age wondering what happened to their life and how on earth did it fly by so quickly.

Speaking of time, you want to know what I got for my Big day? A very appropriate gift for the way that I've felt this week. My hubby got a 1888 Elgin woman's pocket watch for me. It's beautiful, I love it! Such a great piece of history. I can only imagine the woman who happened to have owned it. I wonder if she felt her life flying by.
Here's some quick pics I took of my new/very old watch
What do you think? Beautiful,right?

Here's another very, very special gift that my sweet girl, Molly gave me. She hand painted me my very own Birthday card sign. Molly told me that there just wasn't a card that said what she felt, so she painted me one herself. Is she not the sweetest girl ever??

When I read it for the first and second and third time, (with tears in my eyes) it sure makes me realize where my life has gone.... My kiddos, they own my heart and I'm so very proud that I am their Mama.

Well, I'm another year older and hopefully wiser. Though here's hoping that the next 365 days Do Not pass by as quickly as the last!

From the Heart,


  1. Sweet gifts.
