Today is my youngest daughter’s 25 th birthday. It seems like yesterday she was a toddler taking “charge” of her baby brother. I remember sitting on the floor with them watching the two of them laughing and playing together, thinking to myself….nothing could ever be quite as beautiful. My eyes became my camera…I wanted to stop time and savor every precious moment.
But…time passes much too quickly ..as the song goes and all four of my children are grown. If I could pass on a few words of wisdom to young parents I would say…Stop and enjoy those moments.Turn off the television, hang up the telephone and interact with your children.
Life is hectic…sometimes there are barely enough hours in the day to get everything done. But then I think of what my Mother used to say, “The housework will be there tomorrow..but that precious moment will be gone forever.”
