They Grow…

One of my lines is “You feed them, you water them, and they grow.” No, I’m not talking about plants (although the premise applies). I’m talking about our children.

My son, Ethan, turned 18 yesterday. He graduates high school in a couple of weeks. Where has the time gone?

You see, kids come home from the hospital swaddled in a cozy blanket. They know nothing of the world…They’re sponges, if we may…

I am so proud of the man my son has become. He overcame autism (Asperger’s Syndrome) to become an amazing photographer and an even better friend to those who know him. He’s intuitive, empathetic, hardworking, and kind. Ethan begins college in August, and I know he will be successful with wherever his future takes him.

From a little bundle of joy to a man…and it all happened in the blink of an eye. I’m not kidding! Time goes so fast…an important fact to be aware as you bring your infant home.

With a tear in my eye…


Stay groovy…
