Oh My! Times Does Fly!

Today, I am celebrating my birthday.   The years have gone by so quickly!  It all seems like just yesterday!  I often miss those days when everything seemed so simple.  When I didn’t have school and the business of life to worry about.  When I could run through my Florida backyard completely barefoot in the heat of summer.  When I could play all day without a care in the world.  When I could just be a child.  Childhood is a wonderful thing.  Children enjoy life to its fullest and are never afraid of just being themselves. 

But I am thankful for memories… 

Memories of all of the things I was able to do in those short years of childhood.  Memories of exciting trips to Disney World, Washington D.C, or Grandma’s House.  Memories of friends I have grown up with since kindergarten, or have enjoyed since 5th grade.  The thrill of finally getting a puppy after praying for many years is a feeling that is not soon forgotten.  But most of all I am thankful for the memory of family.  The night I saw my brother for the first time; camping with my dad; going on excursions in little mountain towns with my mom; the weekend my little sister was born.  These are times I will never forget…on my birthday and always.

I thought I would post something special for this day that I think you, my kindred spirits, will especially enjoy.  Here are a few pictures of me (and maybe even my sweet brother) throughout the early years.
