Sunday, May 12, 2013

How could the years have gone by so quickly when some of the afternoons of toddlerhood were so incredibly long?

    So true...we should have understood this when those afternoons were dragging...might have made it easier to get through!

    You sure do have that right.
    I enjoyed those days but I wish I had enjoyed them even more. HUGS and much love Pat in Maine.

    it is so true--especially when I look at our youngest (of our 8)...It seems impossible that he could be in driver's ed now when I am sure that I was still getting him dressed yesterday. I don't get how time can fly in some ways and not in others.

    Again, our oldest turned 31 in March and he sure seems to be the boy who needed me to explain when a kid was bullying him rather than being a friend. Some of these memories are not the kind I want to relive.

    Happy Mother's Day,

    My Susie says I've changed since ACIM - I don't get mad at other drivers, for instance and the news on tv doesn't bother me as much. I try to remember to ask the Spirit within, "help me look at this another way..." Now I don't always have to's automatic to realize it's just an illusion.

    Hey, we could be posting these comments of ours on the team page... emoticon

    I know! And how do the decades speed by so quickly when a year used to be a lengthy chunk of time? And why do I feel that I can remember the days of the old Queen Victoria so well when I really wasn't there? But I find tomorrow a bit unimaginable?

    My toddler has some molars coming in and is getting over being sick so it has been a looooong and fussy afternoon for us, but thankfully it is naptime now. And naptime for Mommy too! I love my little guy so much and I know it will all go by fast, but sometimes it really, really does seem like we have some long days. emoticon

    Who said, "The days are long, the years are short"? So true.

    Mine are still youngish (11 and 13), but I miss their younger selves.

    Happy Mother's Day!

    I totally agree! I would give my right arm to have one of those afternoons back!!! I've heard a quote "the days drag, but the years fly". I'm not sure that's it but that's the gist of it. Have a good day!

    You said it! Best days of my life, in some ways, working outside the home, crafts, walked everywhere pushing a stroller...120-125#. Wow! Trying to get there again!
