You Can’t Get the Time Back

You can’t get the time back.

That is a thought that has run through my mind many times as a parent of young children…

You can’t get the time back.

When my oldest son was 5 and we had recently moved to a new city with a new baby, I kept him out of preschool and spent lots of long hours out in the yard exploring and rocking on the porch all because of those six little words…

You can’t get the time back.

Now that my youngest is 5, that last year of being a toddler (wearing 5T), and moving into elementary age on the edge of losing his first tooth, I find myself thinking the same thought…

You can’t get the time back.

And so, I find myself in the yard, on the floor, at the table, in the kitchen, at Target, on field trips, everywhere but on the computer lately, trying (but not always succeeding) at making the most of our moments together because…

You can’t get the time back.

I hope this explains a little of where I’ve been lately and why I don’t have plans to come back and blog for awhile. My little one won’t be little for long and I’ll have lots of time to share and receive thoughts here in the future. But for now I’m going to be focused on fraddling with my little guy and praying that God will use our time together to build great character in his life. I’m setting my heart and mind to be very intentional with the time we have because, as you know…

You can’t get the time back.

 

Lots of love to you all!
