Less than two years ago I was learning that living is not a promise.
A year ago I was discovering that how I feel (and look) is all up to me.
This year I am sitting with my girls reflecting on how very lucky we all are. We have so much on account of the things people before us have done. The things we are doing today may very well influence the life of someone who will come after us.
I am choosing to give my gratitude space to live in the decisions I make. Kindness, empathy, generosity. Calm time with my family, driven action at work and a willingness to keep an open mind in each moment.
Wishing you a happy 4th of July and every day that comes after, because not a single one is a promise and in each day you have is a strength to do something amazing.
Beautiful post! Thank you for this!!! Happy 4th! xoxo
Happy summer days to you and yours.
As I reread that post it occurs to me how horrifying it had to have been for Sean seeing all the blood and knowing it was up to him to get you to where you could be helped, remaining calm for you and the girls, all along knowing or fearing – that he might lose you. Wow. Again – glad you made it through that. What a huge reminder to be grateful!
There was that moment when I saw it in his eyes. Amazing how you can detach from what is happening. Precious reminder, indeed.
Happy Fourth, Magee. So glad to ‘know’ you.
One day we’ll take the next step and guffaw’n carouse in person.
