Time Stands Still

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.


For the kids within the video below, Time literally does stand still as they wait..

I hate when a watch stops. It makes your day all messed up.

I'm having a contest. Stop by when you get a chance.

I really enjoy the title of this post. :) Very captivating. I've given up on watches and other time telling devices. I keep myself in time by my schedules.

Routines in the day seem to be the best way to lose track of time, and those few moments (Like "I love you") really help to break the routine day.

Thanks for inviting me to read your blog.

I feel the same way about Junior Mayhem.....even my mom commented that he has lost the baby look. While I love seeing him grow....I am slightly saddened that he is no longer a baby!

I suppose time stops for no man....even when your watch does! :)

I can totally relate. I have two young ones at home and I am always running around to dance, soccer, choir...the list never ends! And, they are only 4 and 6 years-old! I can't imagine when they get older. Gah!

Nice blog you have here. Sorry it took so long for me to check it out from MyBlogLog.

I love the video in this story. I was an orphan myself long time ago but have since found a family. Time does stand still when my family found me. Thank you for the reminding memories.

Thanks for visiting my blog Milton, I loved your blog, it's very funny and I'll continue visiting it. But i'm extremely sorry to say that i can't link exchange with ya cause i use "xclicks" manager for this purpose which drives traffic and increases search engine visibility only to relevant sites.

Please don't mind, SORRY AGAIN

thanks.

Nice article. Those little "snippits of time" I call my personal video collection. Moments that I try to remember in my mind that have a value for all time. Not only sentimental stuff. I also remember swimming with goggles behind a sexy girlfriend in a thong as she was swimming among fishes in the sea. Personal video 101. Ohh yeah!
I am gonna put you on my blog roll man!

If one lacks the vision to see God within these beautiful children's eyes then I shall pray. This was possibly one of the most touching post that I have ever viewed. Thank you for sharing the love and peace of the Lord with me today. I most definitely will push every suggest button available. I wish I could bring them all here and take care of them.

It would be nice if every human and every animal on this planet could be living in peace and safety and with love! We do hope that Buddha Nature will come to everybody and stop greed and hatred and intolerance and and and!
Thanks for sharing, nice blog!
