The days will go and come, you will watch sunrises and sunsets, and before you know it these weary days will be long gone; all you will be left with is the reminiscing.

But let me tell you, me, myself, in the midst of all of this, yoga pants, raccoon eyes and all.. my kids not even in their teens, I do wish time would slow down for a bit.

Remember it’s just a moment in time where you’ll feel this pause.

You will get your time.”
