Stopping Time for 24 hours
Sometimes I have so many things in my mind to right about I don’t know where to start. I came across Mama Kat’s little weekly writing prompt and thought I would try it out this week.
This week’s prompt was “If you could stop time for 24 hours, what would you accomplish?”
Man wouldn’t we all like to stop time for a day. On one side as I think about how I feel right this second if I could stop the world for 24 hours I would sleep. Not all of it but I might stay in bed for at least 75% of the time. But that is just a brief moment of wishing I could catch up on some sleep. Lately I go to bed early but don’t feel refreshed when morning comes around. I know it will pass and that while I feel I need it not sure I want to waste 24 hours on that.
So if I had 24 hours I think right now I would use it to catch up on updating my photo albums. With everything digital it is so easy to get lazy. I take tons of photos but I want to get those photos on paper in a book and document the stories with it. I remember as a kid looking through my albums time and time again. Seeing the places we lived, our friends, our trips, our lives. Putting pictures to memories that I didn’t have, barely remembered and attaching them to the people I knew now and the memories I did remember.
The past year has been full of so much change and excitement for our family I want to update the album so someday I can give MB that same vehicle of connecting memories to life. It just seems that is the one thing on the task list I never get to and keep pushing to the next day.
So with my 24 hours I would print the photos, write the stories, and take naps on the couch with my blanket in between. Ahh now that just sounds wonderful…I will also ensure that I have a couple good bottles of wine to enjoy in the process. That will help with those naps for sure.
