A moment in time.
It seemed like a day that was so far away just a short 18 years ago when she was born.
Everyone says it will go by fast.
Enjoy the baby years -- they are little for such a short time. It will go by fast.
Enjoy the little kid years -- soon they will be too big to hold. It will go by fast.
Enjoy the elementary years, the first days of school, the cute little papers and projects they bring home. Save the little drawings and the stories they write. It will go by fast.
Enjoy the junior high and high school years. They will be so busy and learn so much. It will be tough, but it will be great. They are becoming who they were meant to be. It will go by fast.
And it did.
And it was great.
We're so blessed, and lucky, and proud.
She has impressed us with her attitude, her dedication to both academics and sports, her love of God & family & friends, her loyalty, and her perseverance.
And we know the next two months will go by fast.
Then a new journey, with more precious moments in time, will begin.
