Time does not stop. It does not slow down.
It marches forward, minute by minute, hour by hour.
Each day brings a new gift, a second chance, a promise of hope.
And, each day passes with missed opportunities, failed intentions, and mournful regrets.
The calendar pages turn and fall.
The hands of a weathered clock, tired and frail, continue to tick, tocking, tick,
Singing us all a lullaby.
Reminding us to make, each and every minute count,
Breathe life into every moment,
Make it matter, make it mean something, make it a memory.
Here are a few moments from 2012 that are now stitched into the fabric of my family’s past.
In April, God sent me another niece.
After a full school year of tears, trials and tribulations; Lauryn’s teachers and I, let out a collective sigh, as Lauryn received the highly esteemed, preschool diploma!
2012, also, brought lots of love.
I hope 2013 brings even more for you and yours! God Bless!
