Proudly parading her new hair bands neatly tied just moments ago . Now admiring herself in the mirror as she tilted her head from side to side. It was so child-like but yet had glimpses of maturity. She is becoming a lady.
As I watched, I inadvertently fast forwarded to a time when she will stare in the mirror , all grown up , ready to take that walk down the aisle. I will then reminisce the times when she would so innocently flaunt herself in the mirror. A time when she was mine and would spend bedtime stories on my shoulder.
That time is now! Enjoying the present moment feels like time travel. They change so quickly that today’s behaviour can evolve as quickly as it appeared.
Time will not stop and they will not stop growing. Fast forwarding does allow me to appreciate these moments. Moments that will pass quickly into memory!
