Just for a Minute

Where did it go...I want it back...not all of it...just a few minutes of when my kids were kids...those little snotty noses, those hugs and kisses, those family get togethers when the kids were all having fun and we were gathered on holidays, ballgames, swim meets, birthday parties, school everything is so complicated...I realize I set myself up by not being more demanding and always saying whatever....well, if I had it to do over again I would insist that my kids visit me on all holidays..I would make sure they valued family time right under worship time...there would never be a question of where are we's funny when I look around...I know all families are dysfunctional....but it seems like my kids and our family had a pretty normal I see that the ones that had a crazy messed-up past stick together more than us......makes me sad...I'm happy for my kids...all grown with families of their own and I know it's selfish of me, but I want just the five of us again, just for a minute...
