Toddlers Grow Up!

cowboywill1

I thought I was going to excitedly write about my new book publication that will be available after tomorrow! But instead I decided to take a break after working all day on ‘the details’ of the book, and celebrate how toddlers grow up! This is a little drawing I did of one of our sons when he was in his cowboy career days! And today, that ‘lil cowboy’ turned thirty! Even though I can’t quite get the real life and likeness his wonderfulness at this age, I’m realizing that memories of our little boys and girls are etched forever in our hearts. Their chubby little legs, feet and fingers, their sweet voices, and wobbly proud walks. They are so precious growing up and the preciousness never goes away, even when they become wonderful men and wonderful women! So, rather than miss those days with sadness, I just want to celebrate how they are embedded in us forever at every age and stage, and it’s such a privilege to get to watch them grow up!

    Dear Ms. Gordon: I live in Houston and I’m fan of your son John:-)
    Is this John when he was little?

      Thanks for your comment. Actually, John looked very much like this, but this little cowboy is a picture of his younger brother as a toddler.

      Thanks, Catherine. My children made me a great mom! I’m so grateful for being a part of their lives! The experiences in your life are preparing you to be a great mom, too, some day! Then, I get to be a grand mom!
