WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?

I can't believe it's June already. Time just seems to fly by as I get older. I remember when I was a child, it seemed like time moved so slowly. Don't you remember when the summer felt like it lasted forever.

Here I am realizing the end of June and the end of the school year is fast approaching. It feels like just yesterday that "Special K" was starting her first day of school, and now she is just days away from finishing her first year of school. I can't believe it.

It's funny how when we have bad days, all we can think about is wishing the day would hurry up and be over. It seems like we all spend so much time wishing days would end, that the weekend would hurry up and get here, that Monday would be over, etc. You get the point. Now I am wishing that time would slow down. It feels like my kids are growing up too fast, that time is just slipping away. I think I, like most people, need to slow down, work less, spend more time with my kids, and stop looking ahead to the future so much, and remember to live in the present. It's like a quote I heard not long ago ( I think it is from a movie, can't remember which one) live for today, it's a gift...that's why they call it the present.

Anyway, it just reminds me that my baby is growing up.
