If I Could Freeze Time - Super Powers!

This topic makes me think of Cher's song, "If I could turn back time." I'm not sure I want to turn back time or freeze time. What a powerful concept. If I could freeze time, I would have frozen it with the last time I visited with my dad before he was taken so suddenly from this world. I also think of the book Tuck Everlasting where all the family had was time, and too much of it! They would never die, and that's no way to exist. If I could stop time, would I? What would I accomplish? If I could add an hour to the day, wouldn't I just end of with an hour's worth of more to do and still have no extra time? There are times when I wish I could live part of my life, then come back to the rest with no time having actually passed like in Narnia.

My greatest wish, though, is that I could spend time with my dad once again. That's when I would freeze time.

Super-Powers! I already have them. Who is able to clean house, feed the children, feed the dogs, wash dishes, cook supper, work a full time job, get the laundry done, take kids to their activities, take a class, attend church, and see to all the minute but necessary details of life, in one single bound? ME!!!!! I'm Super-Mom! But seriously, folks. If I had a super power, I would want to create a new one for myself. No flying for me. No twisting or morphing into different shapes. No ability to rescue people or use my hands to throw fire bombs. My Super-Power would be the ability to always say the right thing under any circumstance. My power would really give me power! Those who always know what to say and actually say it when they should and how they should, with the right tone of voice, the right amount of empathy, the right amount of concern and love... those are the people who truly have a gift. Is that too much to ask?

Forgetful...I wish I had had the "time" to visit last week's Sunday Scribblings to comment on it. I feel the same as you, especially with respect to my Grandfather. I adored him so very much and miss him just as much so.

As for those super powers...ummm...yeah, you qualify! Phew! I needed a nap after reading about your own "powers". How on earth you do it all? Must be God's strength, perservance, compassion, and love that gets you through. Go Super MOM!

Luv ya...QTF
