Long Day? To Love Your Life, You Need to Appreciate Every Day & the Little Things!

Today was a long day. I could forget it, but I get it: There will never be another day like today. I didn’t win the lottery. But I was a good mother to my son, a good friend to my hubby and a good friend to myself. This “uneventful” day – a mere frame in the movie of my life – is a game changer, if I let it be. 

Like a pebble rippling in a pond, one kind act affects more people than we'll ever know. 

A tough choice made out of love for our child. A hard act carried out because we faced our fear. Yes, in 20 years I’ll remember today because it showed me that my life was worth living.
