Have you ever felt that time was slipping through your fingers? I felt that yesterday as I watched my fourteen year old son interact with three boys ages 12-14. It struck me that we only have a few more years of celebrating his birthday together before he could be off to college. Wow! Where has the time gone? It definitely feels like it has been slipping through my fingers.
This year has been a blur. Even my oldest son commented about it. We are down to our last week or so of home school for the year and he could not believe how quickly this year passed. I feel the same way. I have just two more days to get all of their school papers in order before they have their home school evaluations on Friday. As I was recording all of our field trips I was surprised at all the places we have been this past year. I had not realized that! :)
I think God has been showing me that I need to slow down at times and take advantage of the time that I do have, instead of thinking that I will have time later. Right now I'm in crunch time with putting these portfolios together, but starting next week I plan to take some time to just stop what I am doing and just relax with my boys. I don't want all of our time to slip through my fingers and later regret that we didn't spend some more time together.
How about you? Is there something or someone that you need to stop and treasure today?
