I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them. – Andy Bernard
Oh, how I enjoy The Office. Hilarious and profound at the same time. Absolutely brilliant. This quote stuck out to me as I watched the series finale (which was bittersweet and touching- not weird like some other finales- Seinfeld comes to mind). I haven’t been able to get this quote out of my mind-or the fact that Steve Carrell came back for the last episode. I love me some Michael Scott!
These ARE the good old days.
Some days stop me right in my tracks. Time isn’t going to stop for me. My kids ARE growing up, I AM getting older, those really are age spots on my face. We are in a sweet spot of time. The kids can run around the neighborhood with their neighbor buddies without a parent holding their hand to cross the street. We can plan a day out without planning for strollers, bottles, or naps. At times I do miss the sweetness of the very little years. Mostly, I’m thankful for where we’re at now.
This, right now, is the sweet spot.
Wherever you are at, cherish these days. Even during the difficult, the messy, and just plain hard days. This moment in time with these kids at these ages will NEVER happen again.
Lord, help me keep my eyes wide open so I don’t miss a thing.
