His life is unfolding
Just as it should.
He is growing so quickly.
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,
Enjoying the unfolding
Of his life
Of his life
Well said Kim :)ReplyDelete
Perfect words. The growing up fast part is a hard one, thanks for the reminder to appreciate the now.ReplyDelete
Thanks Gretchen. I know, I am struggling with it right now as Reece gets closer to turning four...yikes!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
I hope you are all safe down there!!
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.Delete
We are safe thanks, hope you are too.
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! :)ReplyDelete
