Ramblings and a Freebie Template

Had a wonderful time at my brother's today. The kids swam pretty much all afternoon and then again after dinner. My guy hasn't seen his grammy in a month!! Well, my nieces either, due to mom's infection and the kids' age, so they were all excited to see her. I know she was happy to see them, missed her grandkids.
Mom and I have made plans to go see Mama Mia on Monday night.....girls night out. I love Colin Firth and can't wait to see him, of course Pierce Brosnan is very easy on the eyes as well.
I have to share something that happened to me Friday. I had the realization that my little guy is honestly growing up. Wow, I looked at him in a whole new light. I was listening to his conversation with his buddy (not intentionally, he was in the same room as I was) and they were making plans to meet uptown for lunch. Now keep in mind I live in a village of about 1200 people, so we're talking one stoplight, 2 convenience stores, coffee shop and 2 pizza joints. I've lived here 13 years but am an outsider because I'm not related to anyone.....get the picture?
He hangs up the phone and looks over to see me chuckling and gets a quizzical look on his face, so of course I explain I'm not laughing at him, just marvelling at how quick it seems he's grown this year. I don't see my little boy anymore but a the beginnings of a young man..............it's kind of scary but also wonderful to watch. I am so proud of the person he is today.
Ok, I made you wait long enough. here is the template and if you so desire the link is fixed for the word art...click on the words Missing Pieces in the post below this if you desire the wordart.
I went a different route with this template but I may go back to the word ones, I'm having fun with those. Download *sorry link no longer available*
