So Little Time

In two months, she finishes her junior year.
Four AP classes - done.
First year without volleyball - done.
First prom - done.

In three months, she goes on her last mission trip as a youth.
Visit college campuses.
Lay in the sun and tan.
Go on family vacation.

In four months, she takes her senior pictures.
Pretty dress.
Casual clothes.
Look at that smile.

In five months, she applies for college.
Fill out the Financial Aid forms.
Fill out the college applications.

Is she ready?
Can she do it?
I hope I have prepared her.
God, where did the time go?


  1. This one brought tears to my eyes, Beth. The time with our children is so short! It was only yesterday...

  2. My dad always told me that the older you get, the faster time goes and it is so true.
