Jen over at Sprite’s Keeper promotes weekly fun with the Spin Cycle. This week’s topic is ‘Time’. My first thought about ‘Time’ is how fast time flies. Sure, it goes much faster in adulthood than it ever did in childhood. Everyone always said as you get older, time will fly by much faster.
Both my hubby and I didn’t see a lot of relevance to that even as we got older… Until we had the Princess Nagger. Suddenly, it seemed what everyone kept saying was true – time was flying by much faster. We figured out that it was because now we actually had something to ‘gauge’ time by – it seemed that in the blink of an eye our little blob of a baby was suddenly walking and talking. Each birthday marks another year gone by – 365 days…8750 hours…where does the time go? Now the Princess Nagger teases me and tells me not to blink because she’ll grow even more.
When I first heard Trace Adkin’s song, ‘You’re Gonna Miss This’, it struck a chord. So poignant and true. Time is a precious commodity – you can’t buy time, but you can certainly waste it. You can’t slow the hands of time, but you can make sure every minute, every moment counts.
