Your McCoy story is equally well done. A brief snippet of the manís day seen through the prism of what will be, and made all the more tragic for it.
Iíve been there myself, watching my children grow and wondering when Iíll have time to slow down and enjoy the moment. Never enough time, and once itís gone... itís gone.
Very nice, thank you.
You and I both -- I'm lucky in a lot of ways, that my kids are still very young and I'm a stay-at-home-mother, but even I get those awful moments where I realize they'll never be little itty babies again, and that one day they're gonna go out into a big world. Really slams home the dual-nature of parenting -- the joys and the heartbreaks that live hand-in-hand.
Thanks so much for the comment!
