I guess these life changing things happen to put life in perspective. As I said goodbye to my son today, Dec. 2, 2013, as he left on the bus and as I dropped off my daughter in middle school, I said "I love you" to them both in a whole different way. I said goodbye as if it was my last time. I guess knowing you are going to have brain surgery will do that to you! This is how I believe we should always live, except we all get complacent and forget.
Thanks to this experience, it is very clear on my mind that I am very grateful and appreciative of my kids and my life. I mean, I have ALWAYS been grateful but it is with extra love that I sent them off this morning.
