The date August the 5th, the time 2237, the year 2005 14 days from now I will be coming to terms with the new given to me 4hrs earlier that my dad has passed away, I will never see him again or be able to ask him all the questions I have for him.
Fast forward to 2009, same date, same time. I have just completed the most stressful 6hr car journey of my life to be with my wife in hospital, because in about four hours time I will hold my daughter for the first time and welcome her into this crazy, beautiful world.
Another 6yrs pass by, same time, same date. That beautiful little girl I was preparing to meet will be 6 tomorrow and she is sending my arm numb as she falls asleep on me in the armchair and I am typing this one handed, which as a touch typist is a pain as I would have finished typing this about ten minutes ago.
It only feels like 5 minutes has passed since Jasmine was this tiny, blanket swaddled baked bean and only 10 minutes since I last sat down for a beer with my dad, don’t make my mistakes, ask questions you need answers to, tell people you love that you love them. Time flies regardless of whether you are having fun so seize the donut and have the biggest bite you can have!
