Time...

August 12, 2013




I find myself grasping onto and savoring each precious moment that we have spent together.  I replay them in my mind over and over.  The fun times, the laughs and of course the tears that seem to burst forth at unexpected moments.

I wish time could stand still for a moment longer.  

One more moment to tell her just how much she means to me...
One more moment to have her sit on my bed at night going over the days events...
One more moment to impart a little more wisdom...
One more moment to wake her up in the morning by rubbing her back...
One more moment as she sits cross legged on the kitchen counter, us talking and sharing...
One more moment to hold her in my arms...  

All too soon, next week will come and it will be time to help her start her new journey....
It will be her time to shine!

Hi Sheila, You really captured your daughters natural beauty with your photograph, she is gorgeous! I also love the papers and colors you used and your journaling brought back the happy-sad memories of when our daughter went to live on campus her first year in university. Congratulations to her!
Great job, thanks for sharing
