the seconds as they pass...

i know i have said this a thousand times  - be in the moment,  for it is so fleeting.  and here we are celebrating another milestone.  again, not sure how it all goes so quickly. i know this feeling well, the passing of time. i  have done this all before...  but it never gets easier.    a minute ago i was tucking you into bed and stroking your hair, kissing your cheeks and smelling your just-tubbed smell reminding you to brush your teeth and reading you a bed time story. then  in the blink of an eye it is over.   that’s the essence of all of this: remembering to live in the moment even as we realize it is already dying on us.  sometimes it's  unbearably painful, for me at least, when i stop and think about it.   but i know how lucky i am and how grateful i am to have shared this journey with you and that i get to continue to be here enjoying this time.  we love you and are so very proud of you.   congratulations on this very special day.  you are an incredible person, you have taught us so much!

whatever you decide to be  -  be a good one....  we  love you from the bottom of our hearts... xo
