Do you ever look back and wonder where all the time went?

As I sit here and look back I wonder, where did all the time ago? I just past my 7 year anniversary of when I married my husband, but in some ways it seems like only yesterday we got married. Then I look at my kids, one is almost 8 and the other almost 6, seeing how much they have grow amazes me. It seems like it wasn't that long ago I was feeding them bottles and changing dirty diapers, not that I miss not having to do that. Now they are in school learning things and sometimes even teaching me something new. It seems that time has a way of slipping away from us. Do you look back and wonder?

I wander this every day. My life is passing before my eyes because all I do is work all of the time every day online and my husband works 7 days a week right now too because he lost a good paying job and he has to work the extra hours to try and make up for the loss and I also do my part too. It seems like yesterday that we were married but it has been 13 years in July. My daughter just turned 16 in February and it seems like yesterday she was 16 months. We have lived in our home for 10 years in September but it feels like we almost just moved in here. I wander where the time goes, but if I add it all up, it is nothing but work.

I wonder all the time where all the time went. Sometimes I feel I missed out on so much. Esp with my 4 year old daughter. It just feels like I missed out on so much with her and I dont understand why. I look back to when she was a baby and wish she would go back to that. :)

I have not children.I have not husband.But the past gives me so much that I like missing it.When I remembered the days enjoying with my friends,who I have been loving,and the achievements getting hard,I felt the power of muscle and brain were abundant.That is the strength to go along for the future.So I am fond of looking back.

yes ,time flies quickly than we can image.Several year ago I was studying hard for my entrance to university in our local middle school but now I've be a graduate student who is hunting for my master's degree.7 years passed but I feel the same about myself and my friends.Only look into the detail can I find that the world has been changed in many way.In other words I've grown up without any great noise.

In October of 2005 I had a bottle baby kitten, named Oliver. Then last year I had 4 bottle babies. It seemed in some ways that I needed to find Oliver and shove a bottle in his mouth too. Might've had something to do with sleep deprivation...

Sometimes I think like this. I turned 50 a few weeks ago, & it does make one wonder where my life has gone. I can still remember things from my childhood & my early twenties. My child hood was fairly different to the way my daughters is. Its the changes that amaze me more. My daughter is nearly 15, & I still remember the day she was born like it was yesterday.

yes I do sometimes. when I read my diary or when I am alone sitting in the backyard listening to music. I miss my school years, when all I knew was to study hard and graduate. I miss my old boy friends, just friends and we had so much fun because I was a tomboy. I didn't know broken heart, office politics, the life of a minority, losing my dad to cancer, having a business and its problems ... everything was a simple race, who got the highest mark and who won soccer game I am blessed with a loving and supportive husband and I will do anything to save our relationship if necessary. If there is anything that will keep me living the present, it's my husband and our solid relationship going 8 years now.

I wonder that all the time especially when I see pics of myself 20-30 years ago. I can remember it all clearly but it seems like it was just yesterday and yet so much time has went by. It seems to be going faster the older I get too. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~ [/b]
