Remember When

I remember when the biggest problem I had was if I was going to play horse with my brother or play school with my dolls.
Or when I had to decided what to do after not making the cheer leading team.
Or the silliness of what number football jersey to wear to the game on Friday night.
I remember thinking those were the BIG decisions of life! Ha..ha, ha!
Today it seems with each decision comes another bigger and harder one shortly thereafter. Maybe decision isn't the word I am looking for. Maybe it is more like event or happenstance or trial. Whatever it is, God keeps 'em coming.
I don't want this to be a post of complaining. It really is a post of celebration (I promise I will get there)!
It is crazy to me that September is but one week from being over and yet I don't remember a bit of it. Where did the last 23 days go?? Nonetheless this is and has been a big month for us.
We made it through big event 1. Of which was Presley's open heart surgery. We are not adjusting to life back at home ~read, sleeping one hour at a time~.
Then came big event 2. This one has become expected each year but doesn't get easier. That is of course the day of my late brother-in-law's birth.
Big event 3 came and went without very little recognition but it is just as big as the others. That would be the day my sweetie and I tied the knot! We repeated our vows to God and our loved ones and went on our merry way to what is now marital bliss!! I love him more each day and am so proud of the man he has become. So, why did it come and go with nearly no celebration?? Insert big event 4.
The re-injuring of that sweetie's back. Which led to babying all three of my babies on my anniversary night. Yes, I am supermom. But I know that you are too!! This event also led to doctor's visits and x-rays and a lot of pain medicine! I am sure more about this event will come if we can find out what it is that happened to the 'ol man!
Next is the not-so-big-but-big-for-me-event! My baby girl is 7 months old today! Way to grow big girl! And, yes, she is growing...finally!!! She is even a little bit heavy.
And last (I hope) big event, um 6, I think. I will celebrate a quarter of a century and one year! Did you get that? I am not sure I did! 26. I will be another year older on Friday. That is just one year closer to the big 3-0. Sigh.
So, the years of silliness and slumber are behind me. I officially feel like a grown up now. However, I used to say that when I "grew up" I would go by my full name, Elizabeth. I still don't want to do that!! But maybe for old time's sake I will find a football jersey to wear to the game Friday night and fret over which number it shall be!! But for the time being I will celebrate my anniversary with you my bloddies (blog+buddies) by showing off my wonderful wedding pics!!

You're a trooper, hon. And don't worry -- October can go back to me for the drama. ;)
