Time Flies

Why does time go so fast?  It seems the older I get the faster time goes.  We recently celebrated our Little Girl's birthday.  This was a big one for her.  She is now old enough to drive.  I feel so old.  I can't believe my Big Girl is getting ready to have her first child and my Little Girl is old enough to drive.  For those who don't know there is 8/12 years between our girls.  Sometimes that is a good thing and other times not so good.  Anyway, Little Girl had a great birthday and seemed happy all day long.   Getting her permit was a very big deal and after going for a celebratory hotdog, Hubby let her drive around town for a while.  When I got home I took her to the gas station and taught her how to pump gas.  She made it clear to me that this was another reason women had husbands.  I hope she finds a good man when she is old enough.  It will take someone special to handle all of her "this is why you have a husband" chores.  It was a special day and one of those steps in a young person's life when they get a little closer to adulthood.  Things change in a big way for them.  The same is true for parents.  Our world has changed.  Little by little we are loosing control and the say so we once had for our Little Girl as she grows and matures.  We can only pray that we have done our best and instilled all of the good things that every parent wants for their child.   It won't be long and she'll be off to college, on her own and we will be left hoping we raised her right.  But in the mean time, we will keep working on it, fighting the parent vs. teenager battles, and pray for the best. 

Don't waste your time, it is the most precious gift you have.  Once you give it away, it is gone forever and you can never get it back.  Be happy with the time you have and use it to the fullest.
