The Future

Have ya'll ever thought of the future, I dont mean like 5 years from now or 10 years from now
 I mean about 40 years from now. You ever thought about what kind of grandma or woman you think you will be by now and will you look back and say you had a great life or have regrets about your life.

It sounds crazy but I cant wait to be that age. I know I cant wait to see my grandchildren, to be on the front porch with my grown up daughter and her children in the front playing with the dog and having my husband besides me and wondering how on earth we were so lucky to have a life like this.

That's just my dream anyway...that is the future I am aiming for. Of course nothing is ever guaranteed in this life but I am hoping for that future.

Why you say Im thinking of this...

 This past Saturday, in the morning, my daughter was running around with her daddy outside and gosh her hair was so shiny from the sun, and the look on her face was just breath taking. That carefree face, that face where there is no care in the world. I started to tear up because I know that this age won't last forever. I wish It did,seriously I wish It did but I know she needs to grow and be able to stand on her own two feet one day. I can guarantee you though that I will be right by her side if she falls.

My sister captured this photo of me and Megan..I am in love with it!!

I think about the future but never that far in advance. Right now all my thoughts surround the next 5-10, but after we have kids I might start thinking about us farther into the future! Such a cute picture of you guys!
