Speed

I haven't participated in Carmi's Thematic Photographic in a very long time.  I think it's about time I started doing so again.  This week's theme is Speed.



Sure, my two eldest are passing my youngest back and forth at quite a velocity, but the speed this photo brings to the forefront of my brain is the speed at which kids grow up.  I feel like only a couple months ago each one was a helpless baby.  This is no longer the case... not even for the youngest... not by a long-shot.

As my family grows older, I feel the passage of time is speeding up.  I'm learning that it's important to not rush along with it - speed through the day to just get to the next one only to speed through that as well - but to instead savor every moment of every day - good and bad.

Essentially don't rush through life to get to life.  That would be silly - you'll never get there.

Deep, eh?

  1. Love that shot! The blurring gives the idea of the speed of that swing for the little ?boy. I bet he thought it was at least 60mph!!

    Yes, they grow up so quickly. Enjoy each day of them, the next day is sure to be different - something gained, but something lost, too.

    1. That's little sister in the swing - little daredevil - she was having the time of her life.

  2. It only gets worse... my oldest will be starting university in less than two years and maybe leaving home.

    I particularly like how delighted the little guy at the back looks.

    1. I'm proud to say he's that delighted about 88% of the time. The kid is full of "happy".

  3. Time has gone so fast nearly 50 years since my oldest was at that stage!
