I was getting my hair done the other day and as is typical in any salon, music was playing in the background of the beauty shop noise and the chatter of those in the room. I happened to hone in on the lyrics of a song when it came on the radio: You’re Gonna Miss This.
It was the first time I had ever heard this song and true to country music story-telling style, the lyrics held my attention. A knot was forming in my throat as I fought back tears, and a familiar ache of motherhood gripped my heart as I listened.
It is a tale of life. How fast it speeds by with each new phase. You’re gonna miss this is a line we of the elder generation would love to get across to the younger set… because we know the truth in those words.
The days are long but the years are short is another way of saying it. It just isn’t possible to impart that wisdom into the minds of the youth, whose life stretches before them.
Enjoy the moments.
This too shall pass.
It’s just a phase.
All true statements but statements one must learn by one’s self, in whatever manner the lesson is taught.

It’s true, believe it or not…
You’re gonna miss this~
