so fast

It went so fast.

Our kids both graduate from college tomorrow.

I ironed their gowns tonight and as I pressed out the wrinkles it felt as if only weeks had passed since I pressed their high school robes.

The speed in which time is passing now picks up daily. This life is quick, and all these huge milestones that feel as if they take so much time to accomplish really don't.

I feel the speed of life right now. It makes me value each minute more. I am fairly certain that the very best things in our life on earth last only minutes.

God is eternal - I wonder if minutes are even a measurement in His eyes?

Wow, what a big day! I remember graduating from college and feeling sad for my parents that I was moving into the next phase of life. It's bittersweet, but congrats for doing such a great job with your kids. They're amazing!
