Postcard: Life Moves So Fast

Essays, postcards, travels

My darling teenage triplets,

Life moves so fast.

As dad and I slowly climbed Mt. Fuji today,

stopping every 5 steps to breathe.

We noticed so much beauty.

Tiny flowers that bloomed from the rocks.

What do we miss on an ordinary day when we do not stop?

Love, Mom

Anna Bonnema: I am a lover of words and nature. I am fueled by tea, lattes, and dog snuggles. I am a wife to a man with a contagious laugh. I am a mom to amazing teenage triplets. I am an introvert. I am happiest in a blanket fort with a book and a child-or three. I love to gather around the table or around the fire. I love small celebrations and glitter.
