“Time does not change us. It just unfolds us.” – Max Frisch
Summer and old photos are two things that vividly remind us that time passes quickly. I’m still waiting for a slow summer. Molly turned 7 last week and my niece Emily is off to her freshman year of college this week. It seems like it was last month when I was holding her, dancing to Patsy Cline’s song Crazy.
I gave her a photo of her floating in a pool when she was about 6 years old with a beautiful bright smile on her face like she owned the world. A reminder to dive into this new endeavor with the same enthusiasm and delight. The joy we discover in childhood is planted in each of us, ready to blossom at any moment, at any age.
Laugh, learn, share, give, receive, dance, play and savor each day as you unfold more and more into yourself.
Thanks for sharing. As my daughter heads off to her freshman year at college tomorrow this “unfolding” reminds me of one of her dance songs she did a solo to a year or two ago. The title was “Unfold” and it reminds me of how she has unfolded into a beautiful young woman and it will be exciting to watch her grow. Thanks again!
They grow up fast – enjoy and know she’s grown into a beautiful young woman because of her Mom.
