I Can’t Believe It’s True.
Look at me. Do I look like I’m the mom of a 24 year old? Because I am. Officially. Today. As of 2:15 this morning to be all official.
I think being a mom is one of life’s greatest blessings, I really do. There is no set guideline, or plan to follow. You just learn as you go. My son is my oldest child. My first. I remember how scared I was. How in the world do you learn to take care of another human being when some days you barely feel like you can take care of yourself?
Today I celebrate that incredible day. When I became a mom for the very first time. My son has brought me great happiness in my life. I spent time this morning going through old family pictures and photo albums and couldn’t believe just how much time has passed. I looked at family vacations, and holidays. My son is 24 today. Unreal. He’s graduated high school, and college and is now across the country working in a career he absolutely loves and I couldn’t be more proud.
I am the mother of a 24 year old. Wow.
