It amazes me to think that my son Patrick will be attending his prom tonight - he's a senior and will be graduating from high school next month. I'd forgotten how much tuxes, flowers and the like cost. It dawned on me that after next month we will have only one child left (Laura) under 18 years of age. Where has the time gone?
And, to top it off, in June my first-born grandchildren, Jacob and Nathan, will turn 10 years old. Double digits! It makes one think, and forces one to set priorities in life. Time is short. I must use what is left of my allocation of this precious commodity wisely.
