he takes my breath away...

I've been struck lately at how fast time flies..
and how slowly my heart and mind keep the pace.

I look at my children every single day...
but do I really see them?

My heart sees this...
and my mind agrees...


my vision is faulty 
and my perception is skewed

this is the new reality
and I can barely keep up.

so much less the child
and more the man

I say "no" less
and "I don't know"more
less black and white
and a lot more gray

parenting is now about 
heart's issues... heart's cries

I thought this road of parenting
would get easier as we journeyed...

it's just a different kind of hard

I don't know how to do this...
I only know he takes my breath away

Thank you for your kind words!
