I was stepping out for a run when my older one caught me. “Mamma, please, please, please, can you go for a run later. I want to talk to you now.”
“Later, Sweetheart”, I almost told him. “We can talk when I am back.” I really wanted to put in a long run that day; soon it would be too hot to go outside. But I looked into his eyes- gleaming with hope and anticipation. A day will come when he might no longer want to talk to me- how I will long for this moment then.
I stayed back.
“Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”

This is the fourth year that I am going to be a part of NaBloWriM. The Plan is to elaborate on a quote that touched my heart- let's see how far this takes me. If I can tie it in with the writing prompt, so much the better!
