I sometimes feel as if everything is in fast forward- there is so much to experience, so much to enjoy and savor and yet life slips by faster than I can grab hold of it. I feel breathless and, as I've mentioned before, as if I have one foot continuously on the brake, trying to slow things down.
Today I read a quote that summed up those feelings.
From Courtney Kendrick (on the eve of her son's fifth birthday): "....His birthday, the anniversary of my motherhood, is the date my life hit a fast forward button and everything started sinking rapidly into a vortex of time and information. I never knew this was motherhood--watching life disappear into memories at a speed you can't control. It's a rush of so many sorts."
I so agree! My life, this blog, everything that I am is dedicated to my family. It's all-encompassing and yet,
I wouldn't want it any other way.
