Wasn’t it just the other day…..

Well it’s 4:45 on Monday morning- and E is up playing??? (Not his normal routine) :) So, I decided to catch up on ‘catching up’! This past week has been such an incredible blessing: a true gift. It seems impossible that I now have a married son and a precious daughter-in-law. Wasn’t it just the other day that I gave birth to Chase Sullivan Erwin, an 8 pound 2 ounce bundle of energy that didn’t sleep all night until he was 3 years old? Wasn’t it just the other day that I sent that little bundle off to kindergarten all spiffed up in his red and white striped Polo shirt and crisp white shorts? Wasn’t it just the other day that we watched him pitch many a baseball game and march down the aisle at his high school graduation? Wasn’t it just the other day that we left that little bundle at college to begin his freshman year, only to turn around and see him graduate again?

And now that little bundle is a husband. Wow. I couldn’t be more proud or more grateful to a heavenly Father who has woven all of the beautiful threads of the tapestry of Chase’s life together in a way Jeff and I never could have dreamed. When we faced the challenges of raising a child with ADHD- when people didn’t understand those challenges and thought maybe it might be the ‘parenting’-we knew..we knew God had a plan for this gift He had entrusted to us; that even though we were far from perfect, He would make a way. And today, even at 5 am, this mother’s heart is overflowing. :)

  1. He sounds like a great man – no doubt thanks to parents that taught him what was really important in the world, and taught him what REAL love is. Congratulations to your family on the addition of a daughter-in-law! :)

  2. Thanks for your sweet words and reminder that our time with our little ones goes by so quickly and that God has made each of them wonderfully unique!
