I went out for an appointment the other day and as I looked at my Fossil brand watch, it read 12.45pm. As I pulled in to the driveway of my destination, I looked at my watch again and it reads 1.10pm. What seemed like a few hours passed when I finished my appointment. However, when I looked at my watch again, it read 2.20pm. I felt pretty good at that moment for being so productive and was proud that I could do so much in so little time. As I drove home and unintentionlly glanced at the clock on my dash board, I realized it was around 4:00pm. Obviously my watch had stopped for a while but I was still unaware of it.
I wish we could get through the busyness of life with good time management. I wish I could do all the hard parts in really little time then have the rest of time to enjoy, especially for my little boy's sake. He is growing up so fast and it seems everyday as I walk out that door and come back later from work, there is a change in him. It might be a new word he would use, a new friend he would make or simply something new he would do. For example, as the three of us were having dinner one night, all of a sudden I heard my little boy blurted out, "What the heck?" He was referring to the soup we were having that night. If you have read my earlier blog writing with the title Soup Ocean, you might figure why. After "What the heck", he followed up with another new phrase at the end of dinner that would bring all parents with a smile and warmth to there heart. He said I love you. These are the little snips of life that I often wish time would stand still.
