In a blink of an eye, you are born. The world is yours for the taking. All your dreams and possibilities are just all right out there for you to grasp.
In a blink of an eye, Those long years of school are over. Where did they go? Everyone goes their own way...in their own direction.
In a blink of an eye, your childhood is over. You are now an adult. Facing adult decisions...yet you still feel like a kid. A job, a home, a new start...all in a blink of an eye.
In a blink of an eye you can fall in love. Finding someone that is meant to be. Your soul mate...the one that you wish a lifetime was forever with. In a blink of an eye...you found the one.
In a blink of an eye, You go from just the two of you to three...and then more. The love you have created a beautiful life. From the first sign of being pregnant to delivery is just a blink of an eye.
Sometimes that little blink goes by quicker than expected or slower than expected...
Born too early. A child that is smaller than a 16 oz bottle of water. The NICU experience. The feeling of not knowing. The days that seem to go by slow. So slow that the world is passing you up. But as the years go on...it was all just a blink of an eye.
Then you get the what ifs, the hospital stays, the medical supplies, the medications and the diagnosis...at times you wish it could go away in a blink of an eye...but know in your heart that it wont...it cant...it is what it is.
In a blink of an eye...the world is much different. Life is different. Losing a child....in a blink of an eye...its so easy to say "I'm sorry". Its so easy to try to forget...but you don't. You wish that the pain, the helplessness, the heartache...all of it...would just go away...in a blink of an eye, but it doesn't. If that would happen one would never know the love, the compassion, the deep feelings of the ultimate love. To love even after a loss. To trust even after a loss...to feel...even after a loss.
Make the most of every day. Love life, enjoy your miracles...the good and the bad. Life can change in a blink of an eye.
