  1. After reading the other post, this one makes me feel very sad. I understand the feeling of wondering where the time went. At some stages of our lives, it seems to just drag on and on, like when we’re waiting to start school or waiting to turn 18. But, overall, it goes by far too quickly and leaves us with so much left undone.

    Have a blessed day.
