As a mother of four older children (my oldest is 17 and my youngest is 12) I have been thinking a lot lately about the journey my children have taken and what still lies ahead. It's incredible how fast these years have gone!

As we look forward to college next year I think how hard it will be to not have my oldest daughter home. I never realized until I came to this place in my life how difficult it was for parents when their children left home – if even for a short time.

I am so thankful that my daughter and I have had such a great relationship. Dont get me wrong, there have been plenty of times I could have given her away! But she has truly been a blessing and we have grown to appreciate each other.

With Mother's Day coming up (May 14th) I think about my mom and how great it is to have such a special relationship with her. We were not always as close as we are today, and we worked hard to get to this point. Now that I am a "grown up" I can truly appreciate the difficulties she had raising four children!

I thank God for giving me to my mom – he had it planned all along!

If you have children, appreciate the time you have with them. They will be grown up and gone before you know it!

Well put, I have 1 of each, my son is 16 already and my daughter is 14. Yikes where does the time go. They are a real blessing from God though, and I am proud of both.
