That’s what it is in many ways, this blog. A moment arrested. Stopped, captured and recorded. Babes in arms not so long ago!
Such a cliché, but it is so true, the time does really seem to pass by too quickly. I try to hold on but I don’t remember.
Thats why this blog has become a sacred little space for me…these moments arrested and recorded. These 3 wee souls stopped in time. I can step back and take another look.
Johnny’s mum once said she would love a day with him as a wee boy. To remember what he was like, the voice, the chat and all the things that go with the gorgeousness of a wee toddler.
I try to savour it but it slips through; the new things replace the old and their new quirks and humour and little characters become who they are. And that is right and is good. But I love them now – in this moment…I don’t really want them to grow and outgrow me. I’m not ready for that yet.
And so I love capturing the glimpse of now that would have otherwise gone either unnoticed or enjoyed and forgotten.
I love that I’ll get a chance to revisit.
