We took the youngest kids to the nursing home this morning,
to find a "friend" and work on a project -
which ends up being the kids coloring and
the elderly watching with content little smiles.
I found myself watching them,
big eyes and freckled skin
next to crepe paper wrinkles
and rounded shoulders.
Life must go so fast -
and maybe you don't even notice until you get to the end.
I just hope when I get there, I'm proud of the memories I made.
