Ok, it is May - been a while since my last post, sorry! It has just been crazy. Somehow I blinked and school is ending up. Normally this is a cause of celebration and closing of the books. This year, however, is a little - well a lot - different. It is getting close to time for me to put Andrew on a plane - alone - back to the states to get ready for college. How can this be? It was such a short time ago that I rocked him to sleep!
Time plays a bit of a trick on us. We never have enough it seems, but how are we spending it? There is an older country song that has a line "I'm in a hurry to get things done Oh, I rush and rush until life's no fun. All I really gotta do is live and die, But I'm in a hurry and don't know why." Isn't that so true?
So I am asking God to help me slow down. The superficial stuff is just that. I find myself just watching Drew - laugh and goof off. Just to further etch this time in my memory. It wasn't that long ago that we were having a family, then raising a family, now we have to learn how to help them fly on their own. Our whole family dynamic is about to change. Who will be playing guitar at all hours of the day? Who will sneak chocolate chips from the freezer?
As time moves forward I am reminded again of the blessings in my life.
Dear God, help me to slow down and see what you have given me.
Blessings to you all!
