How Can It Be?

How can it be that you are getting so big?

I think that thought daily when I see my children (who live with me) find new independence, or when I catch of a glimpse of them and realize how mature they are beginning to look...but this is different...

When I watch you grow; it is through pictures...

Pictures that are often taken months apart and arrive in my inbox, taken by some sweet person who was able to visit you and capture a smile from you. Pictures that I find myself studying with great detail; in hopes of seeing your heart through the film.

My sweet are looking so grown are looking so handsome...and I am forever grateful that you are looking happy.

If I were with you right now, I would hug your sweet smile and tell you to stop growing...stop getting bigger...stop becoming a little man! And then we would laugh...knowing full well that we can't stop the years from passing...

I only wish I was passing the years by with you.
