While helping our son, Marc, pack up things at the house he is selling, a few weeks ago, I stumbled on this picture.

It was taken Christmas of 1996 with my 2 granddaughters.  Oksana was 10 months old and Jessica had just turned 10 on the 23rd.

Just a reminder to me of how time flies and how very precious every moment is.  Also, a huge reminder of how very much I've aged!!!!  I was also celebrating my 59th birthday that December 25th.

Very happy memories.

I love that picture! You looked great then and you still do. On top of that - I bet you are more beautiful inside now than then, because you've been walking with God for that much longer!

In '96 we were celebrating our first Christmas married! Wow, time does fly!

Time does fly at an amazing rate.

Great photo. I agree...time does fly and seems more so the older I get!

What?! You were 58 in that picture? You did not look it, for sure. And so computer savy for your age, I´m impressed.

I had to click on the picture to see if I was missing something! Definitely didn't look almost 59 there! Hope I look that good in 10 years!

That was a wonderful photo of you.
I think that Mari said it all.
I also agree that times does seem to be flying by.
