It was around this time 5 years ago. I walked into youth on a Wednesday night to begin serving for the first time at my church and the band was practicing. I remember thinking how good the worship leader was. He was wearing a red shirt. He approached me afterward to introduce himself to me, obviously thinking I was super sexy. Sucka. That's all I remember. I don't remember the exact date, because at the time I didn't realize how life altering that day would be. How meeting this boy would set into motion the rest of my life and amazing road ahead. Because I didn't realize he was my soul mate. My husband. Time sure flies by. We've been through a lot in 5 years. And now we are ridiculously crazy in love, married for 2 years and have the most amazing baby girl. She is 6 weeks old today. Did I mention how time flies by??
Last night I caught myself wishing away her infancy to get through some hard stuff I'm going through post-partum. I quickly caught myself. I want to savor each moment. Even when I'm sick. Even when I weigh more than I'd like to and my body is unrecognizable to me.
Because time flies.
And before I know it, another 5 years will have passed and I'll be checking her into Kindergarten. And I'd rather not think about that at the moment!
I encourage you to cherish each moment, even the difficult ones. They are the moments that God has given us and He sure knows what He is doing!
