They came so quickly – the hot days, the blueberry picking, glasses of strawberry lemonade while sitting outside – and they’re already flying by. Wasn’t it just yesterday that school was barely out, when the days still had a hint of cool from the winter? Now the sunflowers have bloomed, the grapes are close to ripening on their green vines, and the days are long. I suppose it’s the way of time – how the days seem to slip by without any effort, how sunrise fades into sunset in the blink of an eye.
I’m trying harder to stop my busy pace to catch the last rays of the sun, to go outside and capture the little things that make up life, to appreciate my time. Because it’s slipping by so quickly, and it’s too beautiful to miss.
