Nichole Nordeman, an American contemporary Christian singer and songwriter, thought of giving moms a wonderful Mother's Day gift with a new song composition, but so far it has been making everyone cry.
"Slow Down," Nordeman's latest single which was launched this month, speaks about how time is so fleeting when you are a parent longing to hold on to the memories of your child's youth.
On her Facebook account, Nordeman writes, "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."
