Too Fast

I moved to this city on the prairie about 15 years ago. Maybe more. I’ve lost track.

And through this time I’ve gotten to watch kids grow from afar.

The last time I saw him,  he was probably 4 feet tall.

And now… he’s wearing suits.  And looks like a grown up. And will be going out into the world of grown ups very very soon.

It’s humbling to see children grow in the blink of an eye, it humbles me because it’s a true realization that it goes so, so, so, so quickly. No matter how long the days seem…our girls and boys become young men and women.

I’m so glad I get to stop that time that flies by so quickly… for just a second.
