Unfolding As It Should


His life is unfolding
Just as it should.
Full of
Magic,
Mystery,
Adventure 
And fun.

He is growing so quickly.
Slow down,
I keep saying.
I wish I could
Put a hold on these days,
And keep them
From going so fast.

I can't pause them, stop them 
Or slow them down.
I can only be present 
To enjoy them right now.

So I hold on tight
to each moment,
each day.
Enjoying the unfolding 
Of his life
Today.

  2. It is a beautifully sad part of life isn't it? I love watching them grow, but it fills my heart with a touch of sadness at the speed at which it goes.


    I hope you are all safe down there!!

    1. It is Jennifer and that is the perfect way to put it. I do enjoy seeing him grow and change, but so sad to see it happening so very fast.

      We are safe thanks, hope you are too.

  3. I know exactly what you mean! I look at my little girl nursing herself to sleep as I hold her in my arms at night and just know that soon it will only be a memory. Enjoy every moment Kim! :)
