      Recently Awakened, children grow up so fast. One day their crying at your knee, the next day they are walking down the aisle. I miss that tie when mine were small.

      Thanks for this. It is a reminder that I need to slow down and spend plenty of time with my girls. Clock time is passing too quickly and I don't want to miss any moments of them growing up.
