There is nothing like packing to move that causes you to realize how fast time goes. I had the “privilege” of packing Josh’s room. Josh is a packrat. He saves everything!
As I was cleaning his room I was getting on to him for being a junk collector but the further I went, the more I reminisced. Going through his school awards. Looking at the crafts he has made. Picture he has drawn. Then I went to the closet. When we moved to Nederland Josh was about 5’2″ and 110 pounds. Now he is 5’10” and about 210 pounds. I looked through the closet and saw all the clothes when Josh was little and wondered where has the time gone.
I sometimes wish we could go back in time and relive some of the moments. I am now thinking about how I can slow down time to keep Josh young a little longer. We cannot stop time but we can cherish the moments when our kids our growing up. I am determined to make more memories with our family. Something that we can always remember, no matter how old we get.
