R is for Rewind

Did you ever wish life had a pause button? A fast forward? Rewind? Or simply a STOP?

satellite dishes ... pimped. soo-weet.
We just got a DVR last week. We were living in the dark ages, people! How did we ever survive? It is so fascinating to pause live TV. Especially whilst watching survival shows on Animal Planet. Those guys make some high-larious faces when they are eating maggots.

It is PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWER (which Disney movie? Anyone? Anyone?). As I get used to having it, I find myself wishing I could DVR life, too, setting things aside until later. Pressing STOP. Rewinding those moments that are extra sweet. And, of course, fast-forwarding the times when I wish I could melt into the floor (like when I am caught scratching the bug bite on my rear in public. Oh yes, I did.).

I think this melancholy state has to do with my new status as a mother. I blinked and all of a sudden my child is almost five months old. How did this happen? Before I know it, he will be one. Then five. Then fifteen!

Before I know it, it will all be over.

What a scary thought.

The bottom line is, there is no way to DVR life. And that is a good thing. It makes us thankful for what we have. It makes us take things seriously. There's no yesterday, there's no tomorrow. There is only the moment you're in right now. How are you going to spend it?

Wake up tomorrow and watch a sunrise. Do something you've been putting off. Live.
Savor the thought of a life full of promise : )


Pin It!


  1. LOL. I have a bug bite on my rear, too. Must be going around.

    Seriously, great post!

  2. Soooo many times I've wished for a DVR for life! Especially with kids. sigh. But you're right, it makes us pay attention to what's going on around us even more.

    So glad you joined us last week! (sorry I'm running late--crazy week.)



What say ye?
