Today 5 years ago Caitlyn started daycare for the very first time. Boy we were on top of the world. Just the day before I had accepted an exciting job opportunity and Bianca was so excited that her baby sister would come to the same "school" as she was going. I remember dropping Caitlyn and Bianca off and then when I left I had to keep reminding myself that I didn't just accidentally left her somewhere, but that she was instead safely taken care of at daycare.
Little did we know that just the following day our lives would change so completely. I think it is a good thing we don't always know what lies ahead because on this day we just focused on everything that was exciting, on the sunny day, and the fact that it was Friday. It was just another ordinary day. We were blissfully unaware of the challenges ahead.
Thinking back about this day reminds me that we should make the most of today. That we should enjoy the ordinary and the little things and the things that fill us with excitement because we really don't know what tomorrow brings.
