creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Slipping Through My Fingers…

Schoolbag in hand she leaves home in the early morning, waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile.

I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness and I have to sit down for a while.

And without really entering her world

Slipping through my fingers all the time I try to capture every minute ~ The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time

'07 summer

Do I really see what’s in her mind each time I think I’m close to knowing,
She keeps on growing

'08 Spirit Week

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
Slipping through my fingers –

schoolbag in hand, she leaves home...Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile

Happy 17th Birthday to my

My girls think that this is the corniest song off of the “Mama Mia” soundtrack.  I’ll give them another 20+ years…I think they’ll ‘get it’.
