I need to slow down.
Because when I look around I've lost another moment, another hour, another day.
Sometimes I can barely remember what I've done at the end of each day. (maybe chalk that up to sleep deprivation...but still)
Every day seems the same- just another day...nothing major or important going on.
Feed Henrik, read books, sing songs, put down for a nap, pray he sleeps well. Rinse and repeat.
But this time is slipping away.
I feel it.
I waste time on things that don't matter- pinning another Pinterest recipe or idea that I'll probably never do, looking at facebook and realizing it's the same 4 people who post every five minutes, checking the weather on my phone for the 15th time (it's not like I'm planning on camping or being outside for an extended period of time).
I worry about decisions that don't need to be made anytime soon.
I lose my focus on the present.
I forget how to show love to my husband.
I keep thinking ahead to _____ (next week, next month, next year).
I need to savor each seemingly insignificant moment.
Because in a few short months this happened...
|not even 1 month|
|5 and 1/2 months|
Doesn't even look like the same kid, right?
Ok, now I'm bawling my eyes out!
I'm going to stop typing and go steal a kiss while he's sleeping...
Dear Lord, please don't let me waste a moment of this precious time.
