It constantly amazes me how dynamic time is.
Time moves so fast .. yet some days can seem so long. A moment in time can bring us great joy or extreme frustration, only to have it forgotten when the next ‘moment’ comes along. And time, no matter how hard I try to fight it or slow it down, is passing very quickly.
Eli took Lucy Hayes on a Jeep ride this morning. I walked behind them thinking how is this possible?! They cruised through the neighborhood, ‘honking’ at birds and squirrels, waved at folks driving by, and looked so big as they (independently) enjoyed the morning.
It’s so hard to say ‘no’ – to say no to friends and family who we love, opportunities that may not come our way again, to myself as I want to do this or that. But looking at these two, and the smile they bring to my face, it only reinforces the importance we’ve put on the word ‘no’ the past several months. Time’s moving and moving fast. I love these two crazy kids and don’t want to miss a minute with them!
