Growing up

This picture makes me a little sad. Why, you ask? Because in it, to me, she no longer looks like my little girl. She looks so "big" and "mature." In reality, she's not, but she just looks so grown up in this outfit from this angle.

It sort of reminds me of the lyrics of the song by Blink - Revive

"It happens in a blink, it happens in a flash, it happens in the time it takes to look back. I try to hold on tight but there's no stopping time."

It seems like just yesterday we were here:

"Slow down, slow down, before today becomes our yesterday."

For right now, for once in my life, I am content where I am. In this morning of my life. Long may that contentment continue. No longing for tomorrow. Or wishing for yesterday.

In this moment. Here. Now. I could just watch. (Yes, I know she's got a broom in her hand...she insisted. Guess it's her new "lovey?")
