Daily Diary: How Did I Get So Lucky?

There’s something about a little boy all dressed up. Drives me crazy! Liam had his school pictures this week and Bill dressed him HEAD TO TOE in Vineyard Vines. That man is OBSESSED with that company. Anyway, Liam came out of his room with his hair done and with this big grin. He LOVES to dress like his dad.

For a moment, I just stared at him and felt… really lucky. More often than not we focus on the negative. The things that should be forgotten are the ones we just can’t let go of. It’s insane if you think about it.

But for that moment, I was completely present. There was no yesterday and I didn’t care much about tomorrow.  I was just with my son trying to figure out what I did in my life to deserve him.

I guess the point of this post is to be thankful for all the great things we have going. And I’m not talking about new cars and overseas vacations – because those don’t mean a thing. I’m talking about the people you keep close to your heart. Those people are life’s true treasures.
