My oldest child is now an adult

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.
