You’re gonna want this back… You’re gonna wish these days, hadn’t gone by so fast…
You know the song… every time I hear it I get choked up because it’s so completely true - Yet in those hard messy moments that are real life, I miss it. I miss it all… I miss the way her hair falls in her face when she concentrates so hard while dressing her barbie dolls. I miss the random collection of toys thrown about the living room floor that somehow has important meaning to her and her beautiful 4 year old mind. I miss the little smiles and giggles that the two of them share when no one is looking. I miss his gorgeous blue eyes and how they sparkle like nothing I’ve ever seen before, only for his sister.
I miss it all, and it makes me want to rewind time so I can go back and soak in all their little moments - because they’re only little for so long.
So, thank God for Trace Adkins or I don’t know if my type A busy body could slow down long enough to remember to take it all in… and thank God for photographs, beautiful unscripted photographs that freeze time - if only for an instant.
