October 15, 2008

Hello again, another full moon is upon us!
I have been thinking about the financial issues lately and noticed how little they are bothering me. In fact, John and I spoke about it just today and we agreed that we just didn’t care!
I think that when you already lived through the worst thing that could ever happen to you it does make you think of what is really, truly, important. My wish for everyone who reads this today is that they will just take the time to look at how lucky you are to have a family you can count on…to laugh with…and make some happy memories.
In the end, simple things like “family fun night” are the ones you can look back on and it always makes you smile. One time we played the game of Life and John had so many kids that he needed two cars! John Ryan and Lauren thought it was the funniest thing they ever saw..their dad with 10 kids!
I miss hugging and kissing my baby every single day but I don’t ever have regrets about the fun we all had just being together…all of us would rather be together than with anyone else..and that is a blessing that I am thankful for.
So, today, spend some time with the people you love and take a minute to realize how lucky you are.

I was here a couple of hours ago wondering and waiting for jrp's moon blog....I get different things from everyone I read and they help me. Tonite's blog so fits my situation, a friend from 1st grade is having such a hard time, I try to hel as much as I can but after, all I thought about was how luck I am....financial problems and all. I hope it gives you peace to kmow that what you write helps in different ways each time...love jodi

That is such great advice. We let life slip away so quickly without acknowledging the simple pleasures.

I cherish family things like reading books to my two sons, a game of catch with my youngest son and long talks about "nothing" with my daughter. I cherish sharing my music findings with them. We have great memories of attending Ra Ra Riot shows together!

Thank you so much for your posts! Everytime I read one it truly touches me and makes me reflect on how I am living my life. It is always a reminder to "be" in the moment!

I think about you often and I hope all is well with you and your family.

Warmly, Sunni (from John Holland @ Omega)
