Dont Blink

Real Estate Agent with Equity Realty- TVG

Here in Tampa Florida the first day of school is tomorrow, kids are excited about school, parents are already getting stressed about traffic and schedules, and the hustle and bustle of the school year begins. 3 months ago I told my kids on there last day of school, "enjoy your vacation" because school will start again in the blink of an eye. Today my 6 year old ask how I knew that vacation would end so soon?  My answer to her, "honey, time goes by very fast", she then asked me to say "Christmas will be here before you know it "  I guess she go it.  What is my point in all this?  there is a country western song by Kenney Chesney called "dont blink" it talks about time flying by, and us not realizing it, not enjoying every minute of every day with our loved ones with our kids.  I for one have taken that song to heart when I heard it some years ago and try to enjoy every minute with my family.  


Life gets busy we know, however we need to take a break and stop to smell the roses.  I cant believe my oldest is going to be 18 in November and starts as a senior in High School, I rememeber when she started kindergarden. Did i enjoy this 18 years? yes and no!  This is why I am trying to enjoy my other kids as much as possible and live with no regrets.

I know I have a Job and I know I need to work 6 days and sometimes 7 days a week, however if I am not there for my family, who will?

Very well said, Jesse!  I find it so hard to wrap my mind around how fast life goes by.  My girls started their first days of 4th and 2nd grades this morning & I know any day now, I'll wake up and they'll be going off to college.  :-(
