The years go by so fast

When I look at hubby's niece, I couldn't believe how much time has passed. I knew her when she was still in elementary and we were still in ophthalmology training. When we got married, she was still in her beginning teens, I believe? Not even needing acne medicine yet and preferring a sleeved design for her junior bridesmaid's gown.

Now, she's a pretty college student who looks very good in shorts and sleeveless blouses and wears them with a lot of confidence. Stilettos look great on her too! I can only look in envy. Sigh. Unless I find the time to work out, I am pretty much stuck with my mommy tummy. I'm also starting to get fine lines on my face too. Double sigh.

While I miss the years that I could get away with eating almost anything and not having to pay for it with extra poundage, I have to accept the fact that I am forty. I am a wife. I am a mother of two. I love my family. I am happy where I am now and I feel blessed to have them in my life.
