Time Flies As Children Grow Up

by Sue Hubbard, M.D.

My husband and I were cleaning up the kitchen (after having a gathering of friends and their children over for a backyard dinner), and discussing how quickly time passes. Unfortunately, none of our children were with us, but several of our friend’s children came over and we realized that “the children” are really becoming adults.

We no longer have young children, but we can spend hours reminiscing about the soccer game, or the school carnival, or the field trip, just like it was yesterday.

The funny thing is, the “kids” are now reminiscing with us and also have vivid memories of times that we have all spent together. These memories are what hold friends and family together. They are the glue that make friendships long lasting.

The passage of time often seems to crawl at a snails pace, while at other times it seems fly by as if we are on a speedway, and our young adult children feel the same way as they look back on years past. They feel a closeness to those family friends who have watched them grow up, and have had an impact on their lives.

Long-standing family friends are important to help ground your children. They are the friends that your children will be comfortable with for many years to come.

It is with friends like this that we all “mark” time. These are the families that you can always rely on if your children cannot reach you. They too will give advice to your kids, good advice, sometimes even better than you can.

Nurture those family friendships, as they are special. The passage of time happens all too quickly and the children become young adults. The best surprise, they like being with you and the family friends and talking about their memories too.

That’s your daily dose, we’ll chat again tomorrow.
