happy and sad

nine years old today

When I was little, I never imagined being both happy and sad at the coming of a birthday. It is now this way, whenever my boys reach yet another year. So happy for the blessings of having them healthy, happy, and in our lives; yet so sad at the thought of time passing so very quickly.

I understand exactly how you feel. I feel the same way every time one of my children has a birthday.

Happy Birthday, young man!, My Jim turned nine six months ago and boy! what a change we have seen in the last six months. When I hug him he feels already a man.
I feel the same way you do, about everything. Trying to squeeze size one clothing on my little one, because I'm not ready to say goodbye to something all my children wore.
