My wife and I just enjoyed the birth of our son! Wait, no, that’s not right. We are about to celebrate his second birthday?!?! That can’t be?!?! It seems like just yesterday when he was just this little thing that we nestled and nurtured. But he is already two! How did that happen? He is talking and running and climbing and doing all the fun things two-year-olds do, but the time has gone too quickly.
And next thing we will find is that he is eighteen and off to college. I hope that time does not move as quickly as these last two years. But I am sure it will.
Time does not wait for any of us. We think we know that there is 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, and 52 weeks in a year. But it sure seems to be much less than that!
We all think there is plenty of time to do the things we want to do. I want to show and teach my son so much, but if the last two years are any indication, I will be glad if I get to even half of my goals.
With how fast time actually moves, there is no time like the present to do what you always wanted to do – take that trip, learn to play piano, or even skydive!
As an estate planning attorney, the thing that I will remind you to do now is have your current estate plan reviewed! All it will take is a few moments of our passing time, and then you will have the peace of mind that you will be prepared for whatever life has in store for you.
Tonight, I am going to start on those lessons with my son so when he is three, I can write and be proud of all those things that we did together and that he has learned.
I will not let life sneak up on me any more. I am going to be prepared. And I hope you are too.
