It is very rare to have a beautiful weather day this time of year in Arizona. Today I am soaking up the breeze outside, and watching my son play. My 2 year old is splashing around in the muddy, wet sand table from the rain we got the last few days. In this moment I could care less about the dirty soaked clothes or that he's flinging muddy water everywhere. Taking in this moment instead of wishing it away.
As the news and everyone else is reflecting back on September 11th, I do not want to focus on the sadness of that day. Instead, I want to not waste a single moment and relish these little things in life. Every day should be cause to love your family more, to not be easily angered or frustrated, and to soak up the hugs and kisses from your children.
