The Writers’ Post Week #77 Prompt: Rewind, Pause or Fast Forward? – If you could change anything in your life, which button would you press?
When my time on earth is done, I would like to re-wind to one ordinary summer day at the lake when my children were young. Not to change a single moment, but to re-live and remember each second, to make sure I take every detail with me.
To stroll with them along the rocky shoreline collecting shells, to see them hold hands and spring into the cold water from the dock, to feel the warm sunshine on my face, to hear my name called out before bedtime….all simple, yet special things.
When my time on earth is done, all I hope for is that my kids are happy and healthy and have learned to appreciate how incredibly intoxicating ordinary can be.
“Do small things with great love.”

I can imagine why you would want to freeze that time, Talya. But as I see your children have grown up to be wonderful young people.
