Goodbye Week. Hello Weekend. Lessons Learned: Take 17.
Goodbye time flying by so fast I can hardly catch a breath.
Goodbye stopping to smell the fresh, sweet outside air after a fall rainstorm.
Goodbye worst offenders of fast food that I'm omitting from my diet (more on this next week).
Goodbye TaeKwonDo training every day this week for my son's Black Belt Test (nail-biter).
Goodbye last-minute Halloween craft I'll share next week on Wednesday (so cute).
Hello Black Belt test and 3-years of hard work and dedication put to the test for my son - good luck.
Hello watching it all unfold and praying he'll be able to deliver his best (he's only 9 years old).
Hello mother's heart bursting with pride for her son's efforts no matter what the results.
This week I learned time seems to move faster while I get older. When I was a kid, time was irrelevant, it really did stand still. But as I become older I see time fleeting from me. As I try to grasp it, trying to slow it down, time oozes from my fingers just like Dr. Seuss' Ooblek. To avoid getting trampled in time's path, I ride it's wave and have week's like this last one - wondering how the end of the week snuck up on me so quickly, so quietly. As I get older the slow, melodic ebb and flow of time are left to the days of my endless childhood memories. Enjoy time as it passes so quickly and turn time into shared moments. It's those memories that are ever-lasting.
Is time moving too fast for you, too?
