Parenting …The bigger picture

Today saw me being a grumpy mom.And I came across an article from an older mom featuring this beautiful song.The lyrics of this song helped me to see the bigger picture as I parent.

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don’t remember growing older
When did they?
When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?
Wasn’t it yesterday
When they were small?
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

— Sunrise Sunset from Fiddler on the Roof.
This song moved me and made me realise how short our time with our children is.
Each day I can see this,the baby I held, now is ready for a big boy bath and a timeout :D.Time flies.
To enjoy each and every moment and realise times does Fly!But Today is mine and I intend to hold and cherish as much as I can.

Psalm 90:12 (NKJV)
12 So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
