Life was so simple then…
A memory popped up on Timehop today. It was a picture of my little guy walking down the aisle in my brothers wedding so many years ago. I thought life was so hard back then. I had little kids who depended on me for just about everything. I had to make sure they got up in the morning and brushed their teeth before school. I usually had to help my son find his shoes and remember to take his backpack on his way out the door. I had to make sure they ate breakfast and put on a jacket on a chilly day. I had to rush them to dance lessons, gymnastics, swim team, football, soccer. It was a busy time and it’s all a blur.
Looking back now those days were simple. They were small and innocent and I was so much of their little world. Today I have teenagers. Today I worry about real things like drugs and date rape and getting good enough grades to get into college someday. I worry about who they will be and what contribution they will make to a society that needs compassion and kindness more than ever before.
Yesterday they were so little and today they are almost adults. Life was so simple back then.
One thought on “A Snapshot in Time”
I do not know if life was “simpler” back when my children were younger. For sure I look back at that time with a sense of nostalgia.
