Simple things...

In a recent blog entry I shared how difficult the past couple of weeks have been for all parties involved. While this may hold true, I'd like to let all of you know that it's not going to break me. Nor will I let it break Kevin.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. My boys definitely are the force behind my strength. They're also my daily reminder to "enjoy the simple things in life." For any of you that have children, you absolutely understand what I'm talking about. Having children is like getting to re-live your childhood all over again. Lucky for Kaeden & Quinton both of their parents are kids at heart.

Since the beginning of Kevin's heart failure, I've, well, we've learned to enjoy the simple things in life more than before.  Is it possible? YES!

Being able to let the day's problems disappear for 20 minutes, one hour, a day, or even just five minutes...it's important to stop and smell the roses so to speak. There are no guarantees in life.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, and hope for tomorrow.

Enjoy the simple things in life.

The pix you see throughout this blog entry are of my family enjoying "the simple things in life." I hope we inspire you to do the same.

family time IS family time. it really doesn't matter where you are. this particular pic was taken earlier this year when I brought the boys to "daddy's place" for a 30 minute visit.
