I don’t know what to do today.
Or maybe I’ll go ride my bike,
I’m so confused and bored, and blue,

I found the above humorous poem and thought about my kids when they were small. Outside of TV, the only technology we had was the Atari, playing games like Pong and Asteroids. Does anyone remember those? But the most entertainment for me was watching my kids doing aerobics saying:
“Watch me, Mommy.”
“Mommy, look at this.”
“See what I can do, Mommy?”
Today, my grown children each have individual giftings, talents, and uniqueness. I still love hearing from them whether they call, text, or email me. My heart skips a beat whenever they excel in their achievements. They still put a smile on my face. We can still laugh together.
Children grow fast. All you have to do is blink. You’ll wonder where did the time fly? Cherish those moments.
Oh, and by the way, I drew the sketch below of my kids, some twenty-seven years ago.
Wasn’t it just yesterday?
