Sappy Post Warning!! :o)

As I shared in another post, my youngest son just turned 8 over the weekend and yes, I'm feeling a little sappy.  My babies are growing up way too fast!  Funny how things happen, I believe for a reason.  Sometimes we need a little sappy tear here and there, well that is me this morning.  I saw on facebook a friend posted something about Hilary Weeks and one of her songs with a video link.  I hear/read her name and think of Convention 2012 in Dallas when we had Stacy Julian as our Keynote Speaker.  Stacy was a Close to my Heart Consultant years ago and as she shared with us getting to come be a Speaker at Convention is like coming home for her.  Stacy shared a video she created with the Hilary Weeks song Stand Still.  It is a very touching video of her family with this song.  I just wish my sweet sons were home so I could be the dork mom and give them a hug right now!   

I hope you are having a blessed day!    

Here is the video Stacy Julian made and shared at Convention of her family.  And below the video are the lyrics to the song Stand Still by Hilary Weeks.

 


I've been taking pictures for a long, long time
Some are on paper - but most are in my mind
Snapshots and memories of the days when you were young
I plan to keep them
Long after you've grown and gone
I remember watching as you took your first step
Seems the clock's been running faster ever since
Every day a little taller, it says so on the wall
The days are passing
And they're not going to stop
And if I could
I would
Ask time to stand still
So I could hold you a little longer
I'd make the minutes stop
So we would always have today
I won't let the sun go down
Until you know how I feel
I love you so much
I wish time could stand still

Fingerprints all over the sliding glass door
And I can barely see underneath the toys on the floor
I have wished away the sleepless nights, the noise and the messes made
But my heart reminds me
I'm gonna miss these days
So if I could
I would
Ask time to stand still
So I could hold you a little longer
I'd make the minutes stop
So we would always have today
I won't let the sun go down
Until you know how I feel
I love you so much
I wish time could stand still
