Emma VS: Growing Old

growing up

When a person grows older, they are a part of a very lucky group of people. To grow old really means that you can have multiple chances to live out your life in whatever way that makes you happy. To grow old, isn’t as much as a bad thing as some people define it. To grow old can mean that you can stay up late at night, eat ice cream for breakfast and go to parties without needed your parents’ permission. To grow up isn’t a bad thing either, you get to see the world in a different light. Yes, sometimes the world looks a little darker and a little less rose-colored but growing up can offer you new things to appreciate. Growing old and growing up are two things that I always kept separate from each other. But the older I get, the more I appreciate being older and to opportunity to grow older. With growing older I can get the chance to learn from my mistakes, and grow up into the type of person I wish to become. Growing older helps you grow up not just as an adult but as a person you are meant to grow into. I feel like to truly enjoy life that you must grow old but keep a small amount of your young ways.

Happy Half Birthday

9-13-14 Six Months Old

We went to see a magician today to celebrate 6 months of life for the most amazing little girl I know, my daughter Luella. Well, there is a good chance that I am very biased about her being the most amazing but to me she is and that is what I find most important. Although the magician was a let down, he was just a 20-year-old student that worked at a costume shop, it was still so much fun knowing that we were celebrating this life, short yes but it holds so much promise and brightness. They, as the public would say “You never know what its like to fall in love with something so quickly until you have kids.” Well, I know now what they always meant by that and I am so honored that I am a part of this amazing little person’s life. To know that I am the one that will nourish her into a great existence is such an honor that it overwhelms me with joy.

Happy Half Birthday my little one and may this half be a prelude to the happiness that lies in the next half!
