Time Stood Still

Last night I spent the evening watching home videos of my children.  My kids are adults now so taking a walk back in time was wonderfully glorious, and also a tiny bit torturous.  That may sound odd but seeing my beautiful small children, hearing their voices, and watching them love their parents more than anything – that was delightful!  But there were emotions I felt, realizing that the time I adored so much, my happiest years, were gone – and it was a bit painful.  Looking at myself as a young mother and remembering her, I wish I could have gone back in time and led her through her mistakes – undoing the mistakes.

Time stood still for a few hours.

I’m grateful for those videos and I will watch them again when I need to.
