Today I am linking up with LisaJo today and writing for 5 minutes. The rule is what you write in those minutes is what you post.
No editing. Tweaking. Or Self-critiquing.
Her theme for today is "Grow"
Growth has a way of sneaking up on you. You don’t really realize it’s happening until one day you realize you are no where near where you once were. Sometimes you don’t even ask for the growth, it just happens, thanks to the circumstances, the hardships, the change.
So much growth all around me, and I’m trying so hard to slow it down, because I want to cling to those baby smiles, those precious moments I know are fleeing right before my eyes.
He’s already 1 and sometimes I just can’t believe how fast time flies. How fast people change, how quickly it’s all so different.
And I want to remind myself that growth and change is good, but when I look at my babies, my rounding stomach, my growing family, I want to hold them in this moment, right now, and not look forward. Just sit and breathe in their baby-ness. Because I know growth is inevitable. It’s going to happen. But I really don’t want it to right now…
