Remembering September 11th and Cherishing the Moments…

Like all of you, I have been spending today remembering the tragedy of September 11th. My thoughts are with those of you who lost loved ones on this day twelve years ago. I cannot imagine the grief and sadness that you and your family have had to endure and continue to endure.
I have spent much of today giving silent thanks for all the blessings in my life. I am so grateful that my family is healthy and happy, that my kids are doing well in school, and that I am surrounded by people who love and support me.
One of my highs this week was secretly observing one of my kiddos at recess. Yes, I know this may sound weird, LOL … but my hubby and I were concerned about one of my kids in particular and wanted to make sure that he was adjusting to his new grade, new friends etc. And since we only live several blocks from the school, we dashed over there at recess time and watched him for about 10 minutes. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that he seems to fit right in and was smiling and laughing with all his buddies. We also noticed that they spent a good part of recess reading over a note, discussing the note, smiling about the note etc.
So of course, I had to ask about the note at dinner time last night. Thankfully, my son is not one to keep secrets and was happy to produce the adorable “love” note that he received at school. This note reminded me that my son is quickly growing up (no more are the days of girls having cooties).
It is so much fun to watch your kids grow and flourish and pass through the different stages of life but it sure does go by quickly…
