All of a sudden they have grown into their new double figures, and through pangs of sadness mixed with much excitement for them both, I realise for the first time that children are the truest form of impermanence in practice that I know. The joy I feel at seeing them reach their milestones now is no different than when they first talked, walked or started school...it is simply joyous and a privilege to watch these two beautiful young people grow from the best parts of their father and I, into the best people they can be.
Change is a wonderful thing and when it comes to the passage of time, we have little choice but to embrace it and enjoy the ride. So make sure you enjoy a fabulous year of being 10 Tyz & Bades. I look forward to sharing many new adventures with you both, even if some are through the stories you tell, now you're both becoming such independent young people.
I love you both
