Do you know what this is?
It’s a representation of how many days are in a year.
Doesn’t look like much, does it? This is how much of this year is already gone forever – crazy, considering I’ve barely gotten used to writing “2010” on my checks –
This really made me think hard yesterday when I saw it. Consider this : If each one of these represents a year of your child’s life, then there are 18 of these in total before he or she heads off to college and into adulthood. How many are already gone? If I think about this for my grandkids, for instance Genevieve who is 5 – well, that means there are only 13 of these left to fill her complete childhood.
Here’s the kicker – none of knows how many of these we have left to fill.
We just have to make sure we fill them well!
Don’t put off anything that you really want to do, waiting for that “perfect” time, because you may miss it, or it may never come. That includes having your family or child’s photo session. Forget the usual excuses – “I need to lose weight” “Johnny needs his braces off” etc. Before you know it, the squares will all be filled in.
