Fleeting

I was walking with Middle to Farmer's Market yesterday and reflecting on the wonderful early summer joys that are especially fleeting.  It's sometimes a challenge for me to slow down and just enjoy the things around me but it's important when they are things that don't last too long.  And let's face it - the good and the bad, the hard and the fun, the tears and the laughs - nothing under the sun lasts very long!

Cherries in season
Jacarandas in bloom
Desert flowers in bloom

Lego creations before little sisters get ahold of them
Donuts in the hands of kids
And, probably the best example of something fleeting:  teeny tiny babies before they grow up
"So, remove grief and anger from your heart and put away pain from your body, because childhood and the prime of life are fleeting."  Ecclesiastes 11:10

  1. So true. Good for you for being wise enough to know this. I can tell you now, by watching the investments you are making by savoring life's seasons, you will have no regrets as you look back on these years when your girls are small.
