Yesterday was J's 18th birthday. While he is officially an adult by legal terms, I think it will be a few years before he actually reaches adult maturity. But when I met his father (who was 22 at the time), he was also just starting to grow up, so I know there is hope for J too.
Hard to think that in the past year I had a baby, became a step-grandma, and had a child turn 18. I am working my way through seasons of life at a record pace.
So here's to life changes, and coping with curve balls. And enjoying where I am today. Even if I wouldn't have chosen it given the chance.
Life is funny.
Happy birthday J! Hope you enjoyed those crab legs.
