Before you watch this video – I must warn you: Have a few tissues ready.

This video, which already has over 1.2 million views, was shared on Facebook by singer Nicole Nordeman with the following caption:

“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. Please enjoy the video below, remembering the moments we wish we could slow down, and sharing them with those we love most.”

The lyrics of the song are literally tear jerking (as if the the video itself is not enough), the chorus probably the most…

“Slow Down, Won’t you stay here a minute more

I know you want to walk through the door, but it’s all too fast

Let’s make it last a while”

I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly away

I am your biggest fan

I hope you know I am

But do you think you can somehow

Slow Down”

This video certainly served as a reminder to me to NOT take these precious moments for granted.

Happy Mother’s Day!

    Beautiful video. But I’m sorry where is black kids families. We do have them you know. Please making videos like this not showing us hurts. Bad enough some of our kids like mines believe we’re ugly or whatever negative images that have. Society does not help at all.
