Time is so precious, especially when it comes to your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.  They grow up so fast.  In the blink of an eye they go from learning to walk and talk to graduating high school and heading off to college and then getting married.

A video by singer Nichole Nordeman, “Slow Down,” shows just how precious those moments with your little ones really are.

Nordeman posted on her Facebook page: 

“I don’t know of a more uttered or whispered phrase from a mother of any age, about her child of any age, than ‘It’s going by too fast.’ I feel like I spend my life trying to slow time. Trying to celebrate the growth and the milestones of my children, and then secretly day dreaming about building a time machine in my garage, so I can return to rocking my babies at midnight. If you’ve ever looked at your child running across a field, or striding across a graduation stage, or walking down the middle aisle of a church clutching a bouquet, you’ll know why this song is special to me. Please enjoy the video below, remembering the moments we wish we could slow down, and sharing them with those we love most.”

A lot of people are sharing the video just in time for Mother’s Day, and as graduation nears. It’s been viewed more than 1.3 million times on YouTube.
