September? Already?

I was writing out a check to pay for the kids’ piano lessons when it struck me:  it is September.  The slight chill in the morning air confirms what the calendar states.  Fall is on the way and 2012 is almost over.

I cannot believe how quickly time has flown this past year.  Summer seemed to be over in the blink of an eye and now I find myself getting ready for autumn feeling slightly dazed and whiplashed.

It is September.

Everything is moving so rapidly these days.  I try to dig in deep and catch a hold of something, anything to slow down this frantic speed.  My children are growing in front of my very eyes, shedding their childhood faster than I thought possible.

When they were babies and time felt like a sleepless eternity of feeding, rocking, and burping, I would pray for the close to a seemingly endless day.  Time moved so slowly then, inching by almost painfully, and like an ungrateful fool I wished it away.

Now as I sit a little more to the sidelines in my childrens’ lives I find that time has sped up so much that I can barely keep pace with it.  I find myself trying to do the impossible and make everything slow down, attempting to keep my children little for a bit longer.  I want to make them babies again.

The irony is not lost on me.

I’m afraid to take my eyes off of them for a minute, a second even, because when I look back I might find them all grown up.  And I don’t want to miss a single thing.

Heaven help me, it’s September, already.

Just Write.
