Small Things

Come read this great post about the pace of life and the functioning of our families into today’s fast paced life.

J.A.’s post was the inspiration for my “Fly By” – I loved her line – Sometimes I look at my family and marvel at how fast life moves.

I’m sorry I miss you
Days and nights
Here, there, everywhere

Yes, you have your life

But I’m really sorry
I truly miss you, like a fool
