Cherishing the Highs…

My high for today would definitely have to be the quality time I got to spend with each of my kiddos after they got out of school. We decided to make a homemade birthday cake for Ayden, my just turned 8-year-old son. I always make sure to bake a homemade cake with my kiddos for each of their birthdays. I just think there’s something special about made-from-scratch birthday cake, not to mention that it’s so darn good! Ayden’s real birthday was last Friday and we had a birthday party with store-bought birthday cake the weekend before… BUT, better late than never, right?
I even let the kiddos crack eggs… ya, it was a little scary. However, I was very impressed with my daughter Piper’s egg-cracking skills. She is gonna be quite the baker unlike her mother!
My low today occurred the moment my husband turned on the news and we learned of the bombings that took place during the Boston Marathon. My heart literally aches for the families of the 3 people killed (one of them just a child) and all of the wounded spectators. I am so incredibly sad. It is times like these when I am reminded to treasure the highs in my life and to never take them for granted.
