There is a golf driving range and miniature golf course on my walking route. I love walking by it. It is a nice change of scenery. Well, during the summer that is. During the winter it is a pretty drab area of nothing.
Tonight is a very mild night, about 70 degrees and breezy. There were lots of people out golfing. And as I always do, I looked through the golfers noting the families, especially the ones with older kids.
Those make me happy, they give me hope.
You see, since Caitlyn was just 8 weeks old, I have been dreading the day they will get older, grow up, and leave me. I like them close, I like them with me. I like life the way it is now. But I know it will change.
I picture this change starting in the tween and teen stage with the girls not wanting to be around us…and only growing until we haven’t seen them in months.
But those people miniature golfing, they, give me hope. They give me hope we can weather the years together, as a family. Growing and learning together.
