My youngest turned 10 the other day. Ten years and yet it feels like the blink of an eye. It really is amazing how time flies. It seems like only yesterday I was getting married, having my first child, second child and then third. I often have trouble with time and when this or that happened. Every milestone that comes up I realize more and more that time does seem to pass by even faster than the previous year. I remember my mother telling me that when I was younger. Enjoy being young, don't be in a rush to grow up, time will fly by faster than you can know where it all went. Now, I have become my mother and repeat those same words to my children.
I think if you ask most people if this is where they thought they would be 10, 15, 20 or more years ago they would say NO. But if you asked them if they are happy where they are, I think aside from some small or even large issues in their life, they would say yes.
This past week reminded me that time has a way of setting up blocks
of your life. At least for some of us. This was who I was then. Then this was who I was, and now THIS is who I am. Sometimes we wish we could be who we were, but with the knowledge we have now, yet we could not be who we are without being who we were then. Yeesh....circles and circles.
