How Time Flies

I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand.
You felt so good in it; no bigger that a minute.
How it amazes me you're changin' with every blink.
Faster than a flower blooms, they grow up all too soon.
~lyrics from song entitled "Let them be little"~
~Written and sung by artist Billy Dean~

It seems like just yesterday that I woke my husband at 4:30am to tell him it was time to go the hospital. Oh I can still remember how excited and nervous I was to become a mother. For as long as I can remember, that was my dream--to be a mommy. This day April 26, 1991 that dream would finally come true. I had a son, Alexander William Panormios and he was mine to love forever.
Time passes so quickly. It really does seem as though I blinked and he grew into a young man.
Today we celebrated Alex's 17th birthday with a picnic--the first of the season. Grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends enjoying each others company and celebrating Alex. What better way to spend a Saturday.
Happy Birthday Son
I love you!!

***Alex's first Birthday-----17 years ago . Good thing he still doesn't eat like this :) ***

I'm smiling..I just had one turn 20 a few weeks ago and this poem just struck me full force. Happy birthday to your son -- gee, sometimes both my boys still eat like that and they're 20 & 16!! ;)
