My Favorite Way to Reduce Stress

I’m in New Mexico for my nephew’s highschool graduation and the thought that keeps going through my head is “time goes by so fast.” Wasn’t it only a few weeks ago that I was holding him as a brand new baby? Yet here I sit- 18 years, 4 nieces, 1 nephew and one child of my own later…yes, time flies by. It has so far in the life of my toddler and I need these reminders to live in the present and enjoy the moment.

My son is now peacefully napping in my arms, and even though people often ask me how I ever get anything done, I know how quickly this phase will pass. I wouldn’t trade this time for anything in the world. I know I can’t do anything about the speed of life, but for now I’m going to hold my baby, not make excuses about it, and enjoy every second of it.
