Slanting Sun

The sun was shining through the window at an angle that told me the day was almost over.

I paused

and noticed that my everyday duties seemed full of grandeur.

It was one of those moments that seemed to stop, just for a tick.  

The picture.


My breath was soft and I remembered that these days won't last.

Soon, this stage of busy.



Will end.  And I will be alone with my thoughts.  With the quiet and with my memories.

Honestly, that's scary. I don't know if I want to be alone with my thoughts! :) Seriously, though, I keep having those same glimpses of how fast time is going by and how these kids and these messes and all the chaos is slipping by. Sad!
