Although we know both of those things we can live without, we keep talking about 'not rushing time' and making every moment count.
Because we know we're on borrowed time having my brother home.
We're in some weird shaker of emotions ... completely elated he is here and trying to soak up every minute and the ever-looming date that he'll head back to Hawaii.
Olivia asked me yesterday if it's okay to ask God to slow down the clock.
I think it's okay to ask God anything. But, maybe slowing down the clock for us means taking the time to be still and enjoy one another.
To reminisce and to laugh and to keep pushing that looming leave date out of our minds.
I kept the girls out of school Friday .... so we could do more important things like hang out in the mountains, run on a football field and eat lots of candy.
It was the right thing to do.
We laughed 'til our stomachs hurt and memories were made.
More to come ...
