I had a little baby staying here with his mum and older sister. Having a baby in the house, as well as a young child makes you wake up to the wonder of life. For a baby everyday is a new discovery and adding to his experiences. Watching children also made me feel the ephemeral quality of a day, minute, second! So much happens with each new day.
The baby's older sister at times wanted time to stand still as she felt that being small seemed to get more attention. I am sure many people would like time to stand still. But no, each day goes by and we move into another day, month, year and then decades pass.
The three year old asked me if I had ever been her age and when I said I had, I could see her trying to comprehend that idea and then wrestle with the possiblity that she too might get to be as old as me!
Well, as time rushes by, I hope I can spread some love and light in someone else's life as my December comes.
