Hello June

Fly by…

I truly cannot believe it is almost mid-June.  These past few weeks have thrown me for a loop to loop to loop to loop.  Is there such a thing?  Well, there is now…because that is the “crazy” kind of ride I have been on, but I feel blessed to have the opportunity for the journey.

I see my lil ones growing up right before my eyes, about to take another big step in their lives.  I wake up everyday praying that I provide the right guidance and a strong foundation to help them find their path in this life journey.

The school year is winding down and my lil ones graduate into another chapter in their lives. Junior Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade…please don’t freak out if I keep my 2-year-old home with me until she is 5!


Today, it seems fit to share this graduation poem written so beautifully by Judy Muldowney for her son.  Enjoy, be thankful and hold those you love a bit closer.

Time Flew By So Quickly

We can’t begin to tell you
Just how loved you are
We can’t believe how time has flown
And how you’ve come so far
Forgive us when we stop and stare
And tears fall from our eyes
Time flew by so quickly
Sure took us by surprise
We asked you to stay little
To always be our baby
You said, “I’ll try to if I can,
but, I’ll have to grow up…maybe.”
Now here you stand before us
A respectful, honest man
Strong-willed and determined
Who always says, “I can”
We flip though all your notes and cards
And pictures that you drew
Recall your quips and humor
‘Unique’, dear son, that’s you!
There are no doubts within our minds
That you’ll indeed succeed
Your future holds so much in store
But ‘that smile’ is all you need
You’ve always been so gentle,
So loving, kind and giving
Having you as our son, Jon
Is another term for ‘living’
No matter where life leads you
No matter what you do
We’ll always be your biggest fans
And we’ll be right here for you.
