If you haven't seen this new song from Nichole Nordeman on your Facebook newsfeed, you will. No wonder so many are reacting so strongly to "Slow Down." It's a song encapsulates the essence of being a parent: watching your children grow with pride, yet seeing it go by so fast.
Nichole says, "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."
Nichole goes on to encourage people to enjoy the video and song, and to remember "the moments we wish we could slow down, and sharing them with those we love most.”
You'll be able to hear this song through Mother's Day on 95.1 SHINE-FM. Maybe tell a friend about it and let them know they can hear it here.
