Have you ever found yourself so busy that the day goes by very quickly? Before you know it a week has past, only to turn around and realize that a whole month flew by before you barely noticed it. When you think about what you have been doing all that time, it seems like a blur.
Sometimes, I wish that I could stop time. But I realize that stopping time is not an option regardless, of whether I want it to stop or not. I’ve come to recognize how important it is to live in the here and now. Tomorrow will come when it comes and yesterday is gone forever. But the here and now is all I have, so I know that I must make the best of every moment.
Just recently, I went with my family on a mini vacation. We needed to stop because we had been busy and working a lot. On this trip, we were going to meet up with my older sister Jen, her husband Parker, and their daughter Isabella.
I found myself wanting to enjoy every moment while I was there. I really wanted to have fun with my niece Isabella because I hadn’t seen her in a while. Although, it was a bit of a struggle to relax, at first, I was glad when I was finally able to unwind.
Isabella and I had the best time together. I filmed her as she would do a little show she called “Newsly News.” She would talk about the day and different things that had happened. She was So Cute!
Later, we all went to the beach. Isabella wanted to build a sand castle so I agreed to help her with it. Isabella’s job was to run towards the ocean grab a handfuls of sand and bring it back to me. She called the damp sand “moosh” and the extremely wet sand she liked to call “Super Moosh.”
After we built the castle we made sure that it had a flag. Then it needed a bridge. So we built one. Of course, it needed people so the sticks that we placed in the middle of the bridge became our people.
