It is very hard to see your family grow up and grow apart. Cousins you were once close with, aunts and uncles who used to call… all moved away and living their lives. Just difficult.

I wish I could preserve time. I wish I could make moments last longer. Keep us all together. But that’s not how life works.

How do people go days or weeks or even months without talking to their loved ones? Making other replaceable people a priority, putting their work first, simply finding something else that is more important… I don’t understand.

The only thing that is certain is that life will pass even if you aren’t going along with it. We just have to choose how we make the most of our time and with who we spend it with.
