Fast forward 2 years later, and I want the same thing again. I just want to freeze frame time. There is something kind of cool about an impending deployment in that it really makes you appreciate every moment you have together. The moments are passing by quickly, but they sure are sweet right now.
Jenny and I spent the week in Florida with Parker while he was doing Navy training, and I just wanted it to last forever! We took evenings walks on the beach, and as I snapped picture after picture of Parker and the Jen pup running around in the sand, happy and carefree, I got the overwhelming desire to freeze frame time.
Ready or not, life is changing soon. We will embrace the change and learn how to thrive in the new circumstances. I do believe that. Right now though, I sure do wish we could freeze frame time.
