My tiny children turned into teenagers this year.
Granted, they haven’t been tiny children for several years now.
But as parents are wont to do, we’re convinced those little people really can’t have morphed into growing-up already!!
We celebrated this teenage thing last weekend with a birthday party for them both.
I have pictures to sort through and post…………..hopefully before the year is out! 🙂
I posted these cake pictures on IG before and after the party.
I like them and they intrigued me and I thought I would record them here, as well.
Baking cakes and preparing and pulling out cake plates. I love clear glass. It always catches my eye.
I made this quick arrangement and snapped a picture.
Then I posted it with one of my favorite quotes.
A party without cake is just a meeting. ~ Julia Child
🙂 🙂 🙂
My mother and I decided the same was surely true about balloons. A party without balloons must just be a meeting also!
Then, these leftovers caught my eye.
I love having left-overs from a party!
I picked up the empty cake plate a few days later and somehow the bright mix of crumbs and sprinkles and bits of icing caught my eye.
Before I scraped it off into the trashcan I found myself taking another picture and thinking about it like this.
All good things must come to an end perhaps, but every end leads on to new beginnings of some kind!
I just started a new Bible study and in the first video and in my own words, it was mentioned that sometimes we fight against change and we don’t want things to be any different, ever. Yet, who knows what we might be missing by clinging and refusing to change? That doesn’t mean change is always easy or pain-free. It simply means we can’t see tomorrow and we don’t know what is waiting right around the bend or what new and dear friend we are going to meet in the next beginning!
It resonated with me, because I can kick against change and feel very fierce about letting go of seasons and things I have loved.
YET, so true it is! Many good things and best things wouldn’t be in my life without the change and the continuing on.
I hope your week involves cake. 🙂
