I leaned over to my husband as we watched our children goof around in our pool.
I whispered: “These are our golden years”.
You see, with Ryan at 15 and Ashley at 11 years old, I’m all too aware that this time is fleeting.
How many more nights will Ashley get me to kiss her teddy bear, Patrick, goodnight?
How many more summers will Ryan want to hang out with me? … 3… 4…
Their childhood years are so limited, and no amount of trying to slow down time will help.
Cherish these years we must, because just around the corner lies the threat of broken hearts, career choices, goal setting and University.
Right now… as I look at my little family… I realise that my children’s innocence and youth are colouring my world with happiness.
Their little daily triumphs warm my heart.
Every day I swell with gratitude
Gratitude that these two fresh, beautiful little people have been able to enjoy the benefits of two full-time parents – because of the choices we made years ago.
Two parents who are enmeshed in their every up and down – where we get the pleasure of seeing the world through their tender young eyes.
