Oh my goodness what they always said was true. Time flies. I remember when I was growing up I would complain all the time that I was so ready to be grown and out of school. My momma would always tell me that time moves fast enough to be wishing my life away. At that time I thought the world went by too slow. I remember sitting in school watching the clock above the chalk board tick by slower than a tan line forming and I couldn’t wait until it was 3.
As I got older, I saw exactly what momma meant. Every year I got older, time went by a little quicker. By the time Kayla was born, life started to become a whirlwind of days. After Kelsie was born it’s all a blur. From January to December it seems more like 12 weeks instead of 12 months. I want, no I need life to slow down. I need to relish in the moments I’m missing out on with life flying by too fast.
Kayla, I know that your wishing your life away just as I did years before you. But I want you to remember to take each moment slowly. Relish in the moments and memories you create.
We love you so much! Happy 13th birthday Kayla!
