Time, you don't realize how important it is until its gone.
When our boys were little, time together was much easier. Snuggles on the couch, or reading a book together. Simple things like walks around the yard were special times. Tuck in time were quality times for story telling and sharing about their days. We ate dinner together every night. We learned how their little minds worked, and what was on their minds. Life really was much easier back then.
Fast forward to high school. One graduating this year and one involved in sports. Long gone are the days of taking and picking up from practices. Dinners togethers? We are lucky if we get one in a week. .
High school is the best time of their lives and we are so happy they are enjoying every day. But it does come with a price for us as parents. .
They are busy with sports, activities, volunteering, jobs, friends, homework, and college prep. I feel the minutes, hours, days, weeks slipping past. .
In just a few short months, one will be off to college. The other will still be enjoying high school and all that comes with it. .
As I sit back and watch them come and go, every day. I am so very grateful they are enjoying this time of their lives. However, I cannot help wishing we could get some of that 'time' back...
