Life. Or something like it.
I just read a really good commentary in the NY Times and it made me think A LOT about our life and our children. It's a tough read because it deals with a really sick child, but it has a great message. To me, it's the same message found in SARK's work posted above.
Just last week, I was driving home from work wondering what my life would be like without Kate. What if she had been born neurologically typical? Well, I would be a different person and now that I have the ability to speculate what that person would have been like, I don't know how much I would have liked her!! Seems silly, but what I have learned the most from Kate is life itself is special. I now fully understand the human experience. Even though I seem really busy, Kate has taught me to slow down. I now know how to breathe deeply and enjoy the moment. I have a full range of emotions that didn't exist before Kate. I am constantly saying to Jeremy that I wish we could pause time because our lives are so amazing and I don't want it to end! I've been saying that every month since June - that's got to be a good sign - time is going by and things just get better and better. I just love, love, love every moment that passes. Our family is so, so lucky to be together and have each other. I am just so appreciative of everything we have.
hi I have the wonderful gift to teach Kate swimming lessons at the Woolwich Memorial Center. She is a great swimmer! I would love to see her bring her disney ring to the pool. I'll make sure to speak to her Grandpa at the next lesson about it. Kate loves swimming in her Personal Flotation Devise during lessons. Her smiles and laughter is contagious. Thank-you for bringing her to the lessons. See you next week Kate.
