I am getting completely swept up in the feeling that time is flying. It might be the fall-ish weather we have been experiencing. We had one beautiful week of summer-esque temps and now, it has been five straight days of doom and gloom. This sense of being in fast-forward mode happened last year too. Around June, I started to think... it will be Christmas before I know it. Then snap, it was. My days feel so full right now, I can't help but feel it will be next year in a heart beat... again.
I find myself pausing amongst the full minutes of any given day to take a deep breath and just appreciate. My life is so very good. I know it, and I want to feel it through and through. Granted, not every moment is good... the kids bicker like cats and dogs when they can't get out side. But it is things like squabbles that balance the euphoria and help time slow down a bit, ya know. Day after day is happening before my eyes and I try to hit the pause button here and there so that I can have moments to savor. Like taking a second to snap an image of a dogwood bloom in the wee morning hours as I run outside to grab my camera out of the car while it rained. Slow down. Take it in.
Do you ever wake up on Monday morning, think what will we do today, then suddenly it is Friday night, and you can't imagine where the week went? How do you pause to appreciate? What thoughts do you find yourself rewinding to?
