I feel the time slipping by, so quickly, and I just want to grab hold of each moment and hold on to it forever.
But those moments, they slip by, until they are just a dim memory or lost somewhere in my mind.
I hold them in my heart. With the hope that someday I will be able to call it up, hold it clear and bright in my mind, remember, smell, touch and feel it.
I believe in that day.
My friends, why is it so hard to always keep my focus on what matters? Why is it that those I love most often get the worst of me? Why don't I use my time better, doing the things that matter, and loving those that I love most? Why do I forget?
Why can't I remember?
Each day, I know, I do what I can. I try to do my best. I love as much as I know how.
But it's not enough for me. There's always more I can do better.
Sometimes, it consumes me.
So, I turn to love. I hold them closer.
When I look at the little ones in my care, I see a glimpse.
A glimpse of the love He must feel for me. For all of us.
And I know, it comes down to Him. As long as I lean on Him, remember Him, serve Him.
The rest will fall into place.
