Today I am 54 years old. Where does the time go? It seems like lately it blows away like the wind in the trees. Even though it is April 10th, we still have no leaves on the trees as yet, so the wind blows through without anything in it's way to slow it down. That is how TIME seems to be for me today. Fliting about with nothing to slow it down.

My boys are all grown and have families of their own now. Seems like yesterday they were babies. What fun they were! And so full of energy! We had so much fun. I grew up with my boys, having them at an early age of 18! Looking at the ages of some new moms today, you could say that that was not an early age. But it was then.

I am very glad for my children. I have and continue to enjoy their company. It seems that we do not all get together often enough. Tuesday night we had a family get together here and had a wonderful time. Wish everyone could have stayed longer. We celebrated the April birthdays: Marshall's is the first, mine the 10th and Mark's is the 29th.

Thank you Ineke, for your comment on my blog! I started out way too early even for the United States! I had just turned 18 when I had my first born!

So I guess with the girls, I call them my second round, I will be at the opposite end of the spectrum!
