“Time rolls by the clock don't stop. I wish I had a few more drops of the good stuff, the good times, oh but they just keep on flying right on by like it ain't nothing, wish I had me a pause button. Moments like those Lord knows I'd hit it and give myself five more minutes.” ~ Scotty McCreery (Lyrics to the song “Five More Minutes”)
I had a chance to visit my oldest son over the weekend in San Antonio, Texas. Seeing this man evokes so many different emotions...joy, pride, satisfaction, and sorrow. I remember the day he was born and all of the emotions I felt on that day...the greatest of those was fear. I wasn’t sure I would be a good dad or how to be one. Somehow, I eventually figured out that I needed to love him and give him the tools to stand on his own. I am far from a perfect father, but I’ve done the best I can and I never forgot that he was a blessing from God. The time has flown by and while I’m excited about his future I miss having him at home. The time passes way too fast...so enjoy every moment. Lord knows there are times I’d give myself five more minutes.
