Here is LillyBea 5 years ago today! I can not believe she is already 5!! Tomorrow we go for her physical so she can enroll for kindergarden. She is so excited.
I told her today I am going to make her a crown and she gets to be Queen Bea for the day. She loves that idea. Yes she is my namesake and the middle child. I thought she was going to be my last baby and I knew no one else in my family would pass on the Bea name tradition. Josh won't admit it but I know LillyBea is his faviorate. LOL Shhh.. I know they all are loved the same but it seems like Lilly is always going threw the "cute phase" We try and not let it show that we think Lilly is the bee's knees lol.
Thought for Today
Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Mother Teresa, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein.
Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids?
If you're less than ten years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions. "How old are you?" "I'm four and a half." You're never 36 and a half...you're four and a half going on 5.
You get into your teens; now they can't hold you back. You jump into the next number. "How old are you?" "I'm gonna be 16."
Then the great day of your life; you become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. You BECOME 21...Yes!!!
Then you turn 30. What happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk. HE TURNED; we had to throw him out. What's wrong? What changed? You BECOME 21; you TURN 30.
Then you're PUSHING 40....stay over there. You REACH 50.
So you BECOME 21; you TURN 30; you're PUSHING 40; you REACH 50; then you MAKE IT to 60.
By then you've built up so much speed, you HIT 70. After that, it's a day by day thing. You HIT Wednesday...
You get into you're 80's; you HIT lunch, you HIT 4:30. My grandmother won't even buy green bananas. "Well, it's an investment, you know, and maybe a bad one."
And it doesn't end there...
Into the 90's, you start going backwards. "I was JUST 92."
Then a strange thing happens; if you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. "I'm 100 and a half."
And remember - growing old is only mind over matter: ifyou don't mind, it don't matter...
