Fast Moving Travelator #PowerOfSoft

I’ve written quite a lot recently, about how my family is growing up, and life is changing. We seem to be on a fast paced travelator, that as I get older, speeds faster and faster.  I remember my own parents saying how ‘Children grow up so fast, they are adults in a blink of an eye’ never thinking that it could be true.
