Past and Present...18 years old

Journal entry from June 14,1992
My sister Christie had her baby today!  A baby girl 7lbs 15 ozs, 20 1/2/ inches long.  She had it about 1:30 p.m.  I am an Aunt now.  It is a special feeling because it is something special.  Tori Alisa.  I am so happy!

Blogging today, June 14, 2010
Today my niece turns 18.  Wow, we as a family have made it 18 years!  What a milestone.  For each teen turning 18 symbolizes different things.  When I turned 18 I was getting ready for college.  Some are getting ready for their Senior year in High School.  Some may be looking at going into the Military.  Others maybe got married young.  Or even having to raise babies.  18 really only sets them into two new adventures in life...they can vote and be tried as an adult.

18 is really that transition year.  Not yet an adult with the full responsibilities of life, but not just a child.  A youth learning to spread their wings and fly in this big scary world.  Some had to move faster to grow up at 18 and others have the wonderful chance of enjoying childhood one more year!!!  Looking back I would have gladly taken one more year of childhood.  But like any good 17 year old, I was ready to "grow up."    Oh the things we learn when we "grow up."

So to Tori, may you take each one of these days of 18, your last year in High school, your last year of "childhood" before moving on, and have fun each day.  Treasure what a blessing you have been given to live out 18 with your great friends from high school.   Take each day and write down one thing you want to do in your life time, and when you are 19, share with us that list of things you would like to do.  

Happy Birthday Tori!!!!!!
