Life Happens

Every now and then I get sucked into looking at family photos.  Last night, as I scrolled through the years the experience truly felt like time travel.  I'm not sure whether it was my recently celebrated 44th birthday, or just the pace of time itself that sparked this reflective journey into the past.  It was amazing to see how much our children changed; while some of their infant features remained, others have clearly matured.  It was joyous and also a bit sad to notice the changes both in them and in me.  Life happens quickly and sometimes we need to be reminded to slow it all down and savor the moments.
