My worries quickly changed last Friday and this morning I cherish that I have such trivial problems in my life. Like many parents I sent my kids off to school this week with trepidation and trying to just have faith that they will be safe and they will return home to me at the end of the day. I am sure the parents of Newtown thought the same thing as they got their excited young kids bundled up and out the door for school. They might have had thoughts like I did.."Did I tell them I love them enough...Why didn't I take time to give them that extra hug or cuddle?" I have more time to get it right..they don't. My heart is utterly breaking for them.

I am choosing to honor those little lives and brave teachers by living my life. Cherishing each breath I am still able to take and delighting in the fact that my life will keep going. Like Dorry on Nemo...my mantra will be "Just keep swimming..just keep swimming."
