My Gawd, I'm Getting Old!

I cannot believe that my step-niece named Melanie is getting married this Saturday. It only seems like yesterday when she was born! She was born in 1986. I was a freshman in high school, which is what my daughter is now! I remember holding her tiny body in my arms and kissing and hugging her tight. Now to think that she is starting a life of her own is amazing to me.

Melanie has three siblings. Out of her siblings, she was the one who always ate very healthy as a child. Can you imagine a six year old wanting to eat salad? She didn't like Coca-Cola and always opted for water or sweet tea. She was always the quiet one and a bit moody at times. Still waters run deep with her. She just received her Bachelor's degree and is trying hard to make something of herself. I am really proud of her.

When I see her I can still see that quiet, little girl. Will that vision in my head ever disappear?

I don't think that vision ever will. it's kind-of sweet, actually. :)

nice picture, by the way!

and you may be getting old but you're getting wiser as well.

I wish her all the best for her future :) And I agree with Daisy, you'll never forget that vision of her as baby in your arms.

I like your blog! I know what you mean about feeling old in the presence of those who you knew as children. All my friends and cousins' kids are all grown up and I can remember each of them being born. My best friend's infant daughter was present at our small wedding (she was in a carrier in the front seat as her mom stood up for me). Now she's going on 14! It makes you ponder, that's for sure. I've got a few years on you, but I know how those ideas start to creep up in your 30s.
Making you a "blogfellow" please keep coming back to Poetikat's and check out my other blogs (listed in the sidebar). You'll have to explain how you did the "Snapshots" links for the music. I visited the site, but couldn't work it out. (menopausal brain).

The vision will never disappear as long as we cherish our children. I am a father of three and they are my universe.
