Forties Top 40, #23

#23:  Toddlers to teens.


I have been known to say on numerous occasions in the past decade
that these are "The Wonder Years".


When I turned 40, my youngest was just taking her first steps.
It seems that somehow during these ten years
they have both learned to fly.
Just a few weeks after my birthday, I will have a teen.


I have also been known to say that 
for every thing that gets harder, something gets easier.


I might have wondered once or twice
just how long I could keep thinking this.


So far, so good.
They are amazing!
And while I enjoy the now
I always find myself peeking around the corner
to get a glimpse of what they are becoming.
Growing up is a miracle.


I am still growing up too.

"He who began a good work in you 
will carry it on to completion
until the day of Christ Jesus."

Philippians 1:6

We are all miracles.
You are a miracle too.
Don't forget that.
