Day 113 – Monday May 19
I know some day we’ll pretty much forget about the last week of our daughter’s first grade year and the last week of our boys’ preschool careers. They will all be in the big fancy elementary school next year.
They are growing up. It’s sweet and sad.
I’m learning, though, that one of the worst things to do is to worry about their growing up. It’ll happen. We might as well focus on the moment as best as we can.
Worrying that ‘soon they’ll be graduating’ is dumb. We miss things when we worry about how fast time flies and how soon they’ll be going from American Girl dolls to worrying about Mean Girls.
So, let’s enjoy each moment with our little ones. It’s the little moments that build toward big things. We miss the little moments, we’ll have small relationships. We take advantage of each small moment, we’ll have big, strong relationships.
I suppose the same thing goes for you and me. Let’s do a bunch of little things well, how ’bout it? 🙂
