where has tomorrow gone?

Those of us who have kids don't only see how time flies, but experience it in fast play...!

 

From one moment to the next, a beloved toy is replaced by something newer, flashier, cooler...

 

On the one hand we try our best to raise our kids, school them and move them forward to deal with this world and on the other we see them slip away as they move along their path in life.

 

This teddy bear I bought about 15 years ago for my son. Now it seems to have outgrown my 8 year old daughter. It's heartbreaking.

 

Am I sad because the teddy is waving goodbye or because my children will eventually leave home and see me less often? Not really sure.

Maybe I am sad that this is one aspect of life I have no control over.

 

Time changes everything. Change is the only constant.

 

Have a good weekend.
