Not much of a post but I just could NOT leave yesterdays rantings up for another day .How about a nice quote instead?
"Each day, well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and each tomorrow a vision of hope. Look, therefore, to this one day, for it and it alone .. is life."~Sanskrit Poem
Much more pleasant don't you think?
I think somewhere in the recesses of this blog,I've used this one before.I must like it because it spoke to me again."This one day" was a good one.Never very exciting as we cannot really actually go anywhere.No park,no Target,no Starbucks.Just the car.In and out of the car to take Joe to and from school.And actually ... Zoey gets pretty excited each time I put her in her car seat.At least it's a change of scenery for her.We pull curbside when we get there though and it's a mad dash to sign him in and out.Poor guy.He said to me today,"Can I do play dates again when Zoey is all better?" and to Taylor tonight he said,'Maybe when Zoey is all better we can go to the pool again because there is too many germs there now."And as I was getting him in his car seat today he said,"What day is it mom?"I said "Thursday"He proceeded to say the remainder of the days,got to Monday and said,"Oh no,Oh no,three more days and then you and Zoey go back."See,even when I think he's not thinking about it ...he's thinking about it.We all are.But until Monday we continue to embrace each day,live it well(except yesterday;yesterday doesn't count)and we do our thing.Today,Zoey's thing was rolling.Everywhere.Since she mastered sitting during Round 1,a whole world has opened up to her.And I really think she loves her new view of the world.But she often tires,not necessarily physically,but she tires of the monotony of it so she moves.And boy does she move.Fast.She sits there,tucks her right shoulder downward and ever so gently drops herself to the ground and goes.Mostly to the cold hard tile.Our living space downstairs is very limited so besides a small, say 9x9 piece of rug,her only other choice is tile.So tile it is.There's the picture explanation and like I said,not much of a post.(P.S.I think my grout needs some major cleaning!)Another sincere and humble thank you to all of you that emailed,called(even if I didn't call you back) and commented on yesterdays post.Especially all of you that have never commented before ... those meant the world to me.I feel incredibly blessed knowing my, or rather our, support system is so very strong and mighty.It's a beautiful thing ... and I thank you for it.Each and everyone of you.Thank you.
