Growth Spurt

Growth Spurt

Growth of any kind often comes in fits and starts and yet often we are unaware of the work going on behind the scenes of a growth spurt. The rapid evolution of childhood is not unlike how it happens in adulthood, it’s just not quite as physically exaggerated.

Looking back to only a year ago, I recognize how much has changed in a short amount of time. My youngest has since learned to read on her own, swim with ease, and cruise around gracefully on her bike (without her training wheels). My oldest has will be a teen in mere months and has changed dramatically over the year. And I too feel like a new person on many levels with all that I’ve experienced.

Phew! That is a lot of growing in one year.

What is your life looking like these days? I encourage you to look back to mark how far you’ve come. Perhaps you have an photo to share that reminds you how much growing has taken place in your own life. I got a head start for my Best Shot Monday post this week.

    Great minds think alike, I too got a head start…planning for a busy week. I love the perspective of both the photo and the post!
    This week my best shot is welcoming my friend to motherhood which makes you grow more than you can ever imagine.

    What a cute image. Love the colors. They do grow so fast…I don’t know how my own child got to be so tall with as little as he eats.

    not so much on the growth this week. must be hormones – at least that’s what I’m blaming it on.

    I read this and started thinking about all the changes in my life over the last year and there have been plenty! Sometimes I have to pinch myself that I am living this life. So many dreams have come true all I had to do was let them happen.
