My son and daughter are changing rapidly. So rapidly in fact, that I know I am not even seeing it. While sometimes I wish I could hit the pause button, I always remind myself that am grateful for my children growing because that means they are healthy. When it all starts to sink in how the change has taken place, I want to be able to go back in time and remember the details. So a lazy Saturday coloring session felt like a great slice of our life to keep in the memory box.
I don't want to forget my daughter's current flashlight collection or my son's silly sense of humor - which is an overflow of his dad. And one day, I fear, I will certainly forget. So, while it is happening, before I can blink, I am holding it.
I am holding on with a story that won't forget. It won't forget my children's interactions and fun little things that make them who they are. It won't forget the beautiful stage of life we were in and will allow me to see each step we took through all the invisible changes.
Until next time,
