SLICE OF LIFE~Stand Still

Feel free to leave your own slice or read more slices at Two Writing Teahcrs

Looking at their faces tonight as they sleep I wish time would stand still. The hustle and bustle of our last days before school begins seemed to take hold today as Gracie screamed, "Princess dress!" down the aisles of Wal-Mart.  But, now, now you rest. You are angels given to me and I am truly blessed and hopefully next time you are skipping down the aisles at the checkout yelling, "Nana kisses! Not Mommy kisses!"  I will remember how sweet and QUIET you are when you sleep.  I am tired from the day, but it is these days I cherish because I know soon, very soon you will be 16 asking for the car keys and not wanting any kisses unless they are from your boyfriend.  How I wish time would stand still.  Time, precious, quickly moving and tick-tick-ticking away.

  1. I too am wishing time would stand still - if only to give us a few more weeks to enjoy the pace of summer. Lovely post.

  4. I am with you. Hard to believe I turn 61 on the 7th.
    Good thing I'm hooked into my gym and into the digital world.

  6. I always love watching my girls sleep too. It is amazing how quick their emotions can change at their young ages.

  7. Yes, Bonnie! Thanks for noticing. I appreciate all the comments on my slice today! Thank you! Just finished returning the favor to the others. I love Tuesday evenings when I can stop and read a few slices of writing. :-)

  8. I love "Tuesdays with Story" too! Thanks for the peek into your summer evening - memories of mine past now that mine are either out of the nest or beyond bedtimes!
