Milestones

Milestones in life...they use to be things like a baby's first tooth, first steps, first day of school etc.  Then the more time passes, the bigger they get.  First day of school, graduation, first car, first job, girlfriends, then a wedding...wow, can we ever keep up with the changes of life?  And I know there are still some great things to come.

Life moves quickly and monumental moments come and go in the blink of an eye.  I've shared and tried to practice the 'savor and enjoy every moment' plan, but life gets busy and so often special moments get passed by.

This summer, my youngest son and I stopped by his school to get his end of year report card.  As we were walking back out, it hit me, he is finished with his middle school 'career'.  He will be moving on to high school.  Then, I realized, this was the last of our 3 sons which have all attended this school.  So....it is really, goodbye SMS for our family!

No time to grieve, look back, wish we could have a redo...we gotta keep walking, keep moving forward.  On to bigger and better things.  More challenges, harder classes, things that make a difference in the future.

Kind of like life in general.  We pass through quickly.  Milestones get into our sight, are embraced and then become a memory. May we keep a heart centered on God, remember His blessings and be thankful, pray about these milestones, celebrate them, cherish them and pass along encouragement for those coming up behind us.
