Saturday Centus - Was It Just Last Week.....

I know, it's Sunday!  But I am just now getting a few moments to myself, so I thought I would jump in with my two cents and contribute to Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus.  This lovely lady of the written word (yes, Jenny, that's you!) challenges us each week to write a few words on a topic that I sometimes think she picks out of magazines that are meant to be thrown away!  Just kidding...I love a good challenge.  This week, our challenge is to write on the topic of "was it just last week", which for me, can go so many ways.  So, here is my contribution of 105 words or less, with a family-friendly photo of happy times last week!  My prompt is in bold.

Was it just last week that you went to first grade? I thought I could never love you more, but this week its crazy love!

Was it just last week that you played your first game? This week your love for others makes me love you more!

Was it just last week that you had your first recital? Here you are this week, in college and on your own. I’m so full of love I could burst!

Was it just last week that you learned to drive? And this week your hopes and dreams are closer than ever! Loving you has always been easy!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me gush all over about my babies...who are grown and on their own!  Please stop by Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus and read some great stories by the other kids in the class!  Just click on the logo below and enjoy!

This is so good. It made me a little teary, and I know just how you feel.

So true. They do grow up too fast.

Straight from the heart- nicely done- if only they didn't grow up so fast!

This brought a tear to my eye.

I always end up inviting a bunch of memories into my mind at years end.

I catch my breath in astonishment that time has gone by so quickly...

...and then resolve, yet again, to treasure each remaining moment even more.

On my desk I have a piece of paper that says "May you live every day of your life".

Your poignant writing enforces that to me once again.

What a beautiful family you have.

Thank you for sharing them along with your words.
