I made this for my parents in 1995. I was 5 years old and in Preschool. It has sat on my Dad’s dresser ever since I can remember.
Apparently I liked to write my S’s backwards and make my r’s as tall as my h’s in my name. I can assure you I do not write my name like this now.
If you can’t tell these are my handprints in the cement in our drive way. It was poured in 1995. They, along with my name and year have almost faded away.
My hands are much much bigger now. And just like my prints in the cement my childhood and teenage years are beginning to fade away. I know I am only 22 but I feel like I have have lived through so much already.
The words I would like for you to live by today are, “Today is the oldest you’ve ever been and the youngest you’ll ever be again.”
To sum it up life is too short to let it start fading away, so do whatever you can to remember and enjoy it. Do all you can to live it.
