This morning I was reminded of how fast life goes by. I remember when my children were born and how excited I was to be a mommy. It was like life was finally starting for me. Now as I look back, I miss those days when I was the most important person to my children. It is no longer that way...and I guess I am feeling a little nostalgic for those days.
Soon (June) my oldest will be graduating...and he will move on like he is meant to. I just want to stop time and keep the ones I love close to me. All of the sudden life seems to be speeding by and it feels overwhelming. My boys are so big and I think I'm at that place where I need their hugs more now than ever before. I need to know I am still needed...that I am still an integral part of their lives. Even now my emotions are so raw I can't stop the tears. I don't recall feeling such urgent emotions before, and I'm not sure urgent is even the word for it.
At any rate...
I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I feel it not. I believe in God even when He is silent. *Written on a wall in a concentration camp*
