Where is the time going?
Sunday, January 23, 2011
It used to seem that the week would drag by so slowly and the weekend and holidays would seem to fly by way too fast. But lately I feel like most of my days are over before they have a chance to really begin. And with each day that passes I realize that my children are getting older so fast. My oldest is 16 now, my middle daughter is getting ready to turn 10 and my youngest is already 6. How can it be possible that my daughter is getting ready to start driving now and will be moving off to college in just two years? I am not ready for that. I miss the days when they were babies wanting mommy to hold them. I can't imagine the days that are fastly approaching when they are all gone away from home. They are the reason that I keep going on the days that I feel like staying in bed. I know that they still need me for a lot of things, but I also know that with each passing day they are becoming more and more independant and seem to need me less. My children are the center of my world and I make sure to tell them every day how much I love them. I am doing the best I can to prepare them for life as they grow older and I do look forward to seeing what they become. It's just so hard to realize that before long they will all be grown. I guess I just wish time would slow down a little.
