Can you believe that my gorgeous little grandson is four years old today?! I certainly can't. Just where have those four years gone? It really is quite frightening how quickly the time is passing by. Has it always been so, or is it just that the general pace of life is just so much more frantic these days?
Whilst I am grateful to be in the stage of life that I am at the moment, a stage which I am enjoying enormously, with all the freedom it brings, with not having to get up with the alarm clock to go to work each morning, and no more running around after the children (!) or worrying what they were getting up to (!), I certainly don't like the thought that most of my life is now behind me :( Oh dear, now that's not a very uplifting thought to be boring you with on this Saturday, is it?!
I shall just carry on being silly, slapping the make up on to make sure that I can look as good as I possibly can, and generally trying to bring a smile to peoples' faces.
Talking about 'smiles', I saw this on a friend's facebook page a couple of days ago and thought at the time, how true it is, so I thought I would share it with you.
Wonders why people cannot be kind to one another? Is it really that hard to share a smile? A hello? How are you? Maybe a hug for those in need of their spirits being up lifted. Maybe even a prayer said in silence. Be the difference in someone's life today! You could change their whole world! Spread a little love it can't hurt. Blessings and don't forget you might be someone's sunshine.:)
Meanwhile, here are a couple of photos of my little boy, taken this week, as he was trying on his new school uniform. Although he is only four today, he starts big school in September! Far too young in my opinion. Bless!! They always used to start school in the Term nearest to their fifth birthday but, for some reason, they now only have one intake a year. Why is that I wonder. Obviously, Eli is going to be the youngest in his class, whereas when Ruby starts school, she will be the oldest, as she will be almost five. It doesn't make sense to me. Hey ho! What do I know?!
He did go up to have a look around his new 'big' school last week. When they arrived back home, he said to his mummy, "it's very nice, but I think I'll just carry on going to pre-school." Bless!
Have a lovely weekend everyone. I'm delighted to say that I am feeling a little less tired and weak with every passing day now, so I'm sure I will soon be back to normal. Whatever 'normal' is!!
