Thinking of My Friends

Do you know how fast a year is? If you ask a pregnant mom to be, it's like a turtle running a marathon. If you ask a mother of a senior in high school, it's way too fast. I wish I could slow down time. I wish I could give my friends one more night with their children under their roof, because once they leave, life is never the same. Home is just a place you visit, not really a place you call home. I remember the exact moment I realized that, and I'm not ready for my child to realize that yet. I like them all in the nest. Even if they don't spend a lot of time here, they at least have to sleep here, and check in here, and eat and get money from here, and have me do their laundry here.

So I'm going to call, text, and email my friends to let them know I'm thinking about them. And every second of every day I'm going to thank God that I have 365 more days will all four children at home.
Celebrating one more year of Life!
