"I can't believe it's 10 years since we planted our Millennium Tree! We're a decade into the Millennium." I wrote this earlier, then we were out and I realised it's not 10 years, it's 11!
I simply cannot believe it! Where has this time gone?
I won't even begin to think of all that has happened in that time.
But yesterday, I ran into a friend with whom I worked when Gymboree had a shop in Dublin. I hadn't seen her for 6 years and talking over old times gave me a quick realisation of how time has moved on!
When we planted this tree, it was just a tiny sapling, smaller than my then 4 Y/O son. Each year, in June, Hubby takes a photo of son with Millenniun Tree, and about 4 years ago, the tree's growth had outstripped his. And his has outstripped mine! So, 11 years on, I am definitely the smallest in the house, by a long shot..
But enough ramblings. It's been a great year, many blessings have been heaped upon us, and when I look back, in spite of the recession and the banking crisis and the IMF bailout, there have been so many good things to be thankful for.
So, I say thank you!
