Models for Gap's work/fashion show.
Alex got engaged last night. I am so excited for her and Mitch but a tiny part of me is so sad too. It means that the very last one will be gone for sure. Never to live with us again, just coming to visit. It is so hard to believe that what seems like just a few years ago I was a young mom with 5 young children running around and sometimes driving me crazy. At times I couldn't wait for this time in my life. Now I wish I could go back and have just a month, even a day with all 5 young and at home and really, really savor it. I'd take way more pictures and keep a journal too. It goes by so, so fast. (I am in tears now as I type). Enjoy those crazy days, young families-it will be over before you know it. I miss it. I feel very blessed to have had the five fun, talented and confident kids that I have. I also think they each made excellent choices in their spouses-Alex included!
Now I look forward to getting to know Mitch better, going to their wedding and seeing them start their own little family. And I get to continue to enjoy the 10 (almost 11) grandchildren we have and look forward to more. Now I'm smiling. Really big. Love, love, love those grandchildren. (If only I could find a way to be with one every day!) There is a goodness and fun in every season. We just have to find it and enjoy it. Congrats Alex!!
