The mystery of May is which word best describes the breakneck pace with which it advanced. Mayhem, madness and masochistic would suit I think. Phew. I'll take a breath now that it's almost over.
Much of the month was fun and celebration, and of course as life tends to present itself there was (and continues to be) much sadness and stress.
Our countdown to our England trip looms in the distance and as excited as I am I am still not in a position to plan too much or even make my top 5 list of places to visit. There is still a long list of things to do, finish, and prepare just in our day-to-day. I can't say I'm great at approaching life at this speed but regardless I either have to run or miss the train.
As all of this stuff of four lives lived together zooms around us the boys are growing as quickly as the spring plants. The reality of their changing selves strikes chords with me daily. How can the time move so fast? With each little baby I hold I see how un-little my boys are, while simultaneously shaking my head at how much there is to watch unfold inside them before they exit my daily influence.
Am I recording the sweetness of now? For their benefit but mostly for my own....I'm not sure how successful I am at that.
Today a girl I have know since she was born turns 13. And it literally feels like it was a blink in time. May's mystery...the stunning dash of our children as they grow. I'll take a breath again and sit with that for a while.
