    Ah, Lillian.
    You’ve captured the moment many mothers love and ‘fear’ – when our sons grow into the caring and thoughtful men we know they are destined to become. And to think they were once weighed in ounces…
    Beautiful.
    am:)
    Hope you’re almost returned to 100%

      …..a poignant moment in a mom’s life.
      Me thinks 100% will come tomorrow.

        poignant indeed…
        Here’s to feeling 100% 🙂
        Nice long weekend arriving for feet in the up position along with the hand holding the wine – well – juice glass first 😉
        Feel better, Lillian.
        am:)

    This totally made me cry. My little boy just started kindergarten and this really hits home that my time with him is fleeting. I will treasure ever moment

      Well….I think that’s good….right? We want our writing to connect with people and this piece, a frozen moment in time for me, struck a chord with you.
      We truly have our children as children for such a short time in our lives. Kindergarten is a big step — one of many. Ah I remember all those “first school day” pictures — complete with lunch boxes and back packs, and the kids getting taller and taller each year 🙂
      Thanks so much for connecting with me today! Happy I am.
