Saturday, Feb 4, we’ll celebrate Carter’s sixth birthday. Seems so hard to believe We will make our annual trip to a stream of water, drop some flower blooms and light a candle for the day.
We will take that time to pause and reflect on our short time with Carter and think about how he changed our lives in his three and a half months with us. Are we still clinging to the lessons we learned or have we slipped back to where we were?
Seems like a good time to think about where we are in general with our lives and the direction we are taking. Is the road we’re on taking us to anywhere worth going? I’m not a big fan of dwelling in the past and getting stuck in what if’s. At the same time, we should know where we’ve been and what we’ve learned.
“Don’t let your past dictate who you are, but let it be part of who you will become.” (My Big Fat Greek Wedding).
Happy Birthday Little Buddy! Rest in peace! I love you, Papa
