Thankful each and every day

I have typed about four posts, none of which I have published because I was not happy with them…..yet. I have them saved and decided I should write something. I have been making many observations lately. The main one is that yes life is short. I keep thinking that in the scope of time 100 years (if you are pretty damn lucky) is not that long and there is so much to do and so many fun places and people to hang out with.

I am thankful that on a daily basis I get to see my husband and all of my children and share in their lives. The time with them is not a thousand years but much shorter and I don’t want to miss a moment with them at all. With the real threat of losing my husband last summer I realize how quickly things can change and I know how truly lucky we all are to have whatever time it is we have here. I have grown very appreciative of all the little moments.

My youngest son and I were driving the hour home from his very last roller hockey practice and he said, “well last practice, I bet you will be glad to not have to make this drive again.” To which I replied, “oh no I am not, I will really miss these rides with you and all the great conversations we have been having and the funny stories you have shared.” I have treasured each and every one of those rides, even on nights I was tired. We had great talks and lots of laughs.

My very unprofessional advice to people is to enjoy each and every moment with all the people you love, it is worth EVERY second of time.

Peace & Happiness
