Life is racing by me right now. It seemed that Mandy’s pregnancy took forever, and then wham…Savannah was here and now the days are slipping by. With each day, she grows and changes, and I’m watching a miracle happen.
Birth…a few days old…2 weeks old.
Being a very young mother, I never thought much about time, or the fact that I needed to slow down and just appreciate all those little things that make early motherhood so incredible.
I got caught up in watching the girls grow very fast and being a fairly big coach for that.
Back then, with no digital cameras I took as many pictures as I could, but…you not only used film, but you had to pay to get it developed. Photography was a luxury. It was very expensive for young parents. Now with Savannah, we are taking a bunch and still I will be taking more.
I watch Mandy with her daughter and my heart swells with pride. She is an awesome mother. I hope just a little of her mothering goodness comes from me, but I’m thinking probably not. Mandy is her own person, doing things her own way, and I sure admire how she is doing it!
