Ten Years Ago....

Yesterday’s blog got me to thinking about what life was like for me ten years ago.

Ten years ago….

I was 42.
My youngest son was three years old.
We had six children living at home.
I was teaching five children academics (16, 13, 12, 10, and 5)
I cooked meals for at least eight people each night
I did 4-5 loads of laundry daily
I worried more and cared more what other people thought
My hair was long
I had less white hair and fewer wrinkles
I still had carpet in my house

Yeah… is easier now. Hang in there! In ten (or maybe 15) years it will probably be easier for you.

OK, I can handle it….what was going on with you in 1997?

I wasn't married yet
I didn't have two kids - I said I would never have kids
I was working two jobs & super busy
I didn't have my own place
I was hot headed & thought I new everything
Now . . .
I'm married
Have two boys
Stay at home a lot
Have my own house to take care of
I don't know anything now :>

Yeah, but isn't it freeing to "not know anything?"

I don't want to think about 10 years from now. I will have kids that will be 14 and 18; are you serious. :-)

Robin Meadows said...

Hard to think about isn't it, Scott? Just enjoy the next 10! It will be GREAT!!

God has quite a plan for you and yours! Can't wait to see it play out.

Yeah, but in 10 years you WON'T be! And you might miss it!
