how can i be so happy and so sad at the same time?
my baby taught himself how to ride his bike the other day.
when i was a new mom, the idea of my baby's firsts was so exciting to me.
i was so anxious for the first crawl, the first steps, the first word.
now it seems like some days i am just begging for time to slow down, stand still, even,
and let me bask in the moment...
...for fear if i blink, they might be all gone.
"Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away."
Lord, help me to enjoy every day, every moment, as if it were my last.
