This week’s Five Minute Friday theme is “fly” – so, before I head to bed tonight, here goes:
Usually I immediately think of something to write about connected to the 5 minute Friday theme, but not tonight. I thought of flight, as in travel. I thought of flight, as in personal achievement and empowerment. I thought of flight, as in running away. I even thought of fly as the bug. But, none of that strikes me immediately as being a great topic to write about tonight. Strange…
So, maybe I will just write about fly as in what time does to me. I wrote about it earlier today already, so I’ve already kind of gotten a start. But, it really became an issue for me recently because my daughter is scheduled to be enrolled in Kindergarten next week. There was a time when I didn’t know if we would ever take her home from the hospital again, and that time does not seem to be four years ago to me. But, here we are, getting ready to celebrate her fifth birthday, enroll her in kindergarten and for her to become an official “child” – no longer a toddler or a preschooler. I feel like we’ve done a lot. I feel like we’ve definitely celebrated her toddler-hood, her preschool years. As I look back through the myriad of pictures in my digital files, there is much to remember, much to be happy about and much to celebrate. And when you get right down to it, what more can you ask than that? Time flies, but the memories last.
