When Christian singer/songwriter Nichole Nordeman released the video to her song “Slow Down,” she never thought it would get as much attention as it did.
The lyric video was posted on her Facebook page and received over 114,000 likes and millions of views.
So, why is this video going viral?
The song has to do with mothers who are watching their kids grow up and realizing that they aren’t so little anymore. This isn’t an easy process for mothers, or fathers either, because they want their babies to stay little forever.
“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,’” wrote Nordeman in the caption. “I feel like I spend my life trying to slow time. 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.”
