Time

The definition of Time from the free Merriam-Webster online dictionary:

time

noun \ˈtīm\

: the thing that is measured as seconds, minutes, hours, days, years, etc.

: a particular minute or hour shown by a clock

: the time in a particular area or part of the world

In my opinion for my life, I feel time is flying by no matter how you define it. Either clock time, calendar time or time followed in milestones as my girls grow.

I look at the calendar and see that it is already November 5.  Yes November!  Where did the early part of our year go?  I know truly our days are filled with school, ballet, soccer, girl scouts, holidays, homework, play dates, family vacations and so much more!  I just see it all going by and fast!

Wasn’t it just yesterday when I made the move to California? It was only May 1994, it couldn’t have been that long ago.  I know we tracked our girls milestones as babies monthly on how they were growing and the things they were accomplishing at those ages.  Now that they are 8 and 6 years old it’s no longer monthly but more a year at a glance that we think back to where they are and how they’ve come to reach that milestone.

I don’t remember time ticking away so quickly when I was younger when I was a student in school partaking in my girl activities.  Why as an adult does it feel to go by so much more quickly?

Each day may have moments that we need to remember, moments that pass and sometimes a day may feel long but then there are times that it feels fleeting that it has gone by too fast.  I realize you cannot stop time, but maybe just slow it down a bit.  I see with time how all of our relationships through family and friends have changed and grown.  I see for our girls how they have developed family and friend relationships on their own.  I see glimpses of the women they will be with the empathy, compassion and love they show for those in their lives.  I see time has a way of going by for the good too.

  1. I cannot believe how quickly time goes by, especially when you have children. My oldest is 9 and my youngest is turning five in a few more weeks. It just seems like yesterday that I brought them both home from the hospital.
