Little did we know...

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.

I certainly agree with you about enjoying every day the best we can.
Caitlyn was such a cute wee baby. :)

The last paragraph is so true Lea. We should enjoy every day to the full. Not always easy to do when we have to consider other peoples feelings too. But we should always try to be happy in our lives.

You're absolutely right, Things can change in an instant, live each day as if it's your last! :D Gosh she was a cutie ♥

You're so right - better that we don't know the future so that the future blinds us of the exciting and pleasurable things we have NOW.
Have a good weekend and 5 years is a great milestone to celebrate :)

'Life is too short we all well know. Get yourself going don't be a no show' are words that come to mind on reading your post. Some soon to be famous person once wrote that. Find pleasure in every day. Time is too precious to waste. You have 2 beautiful girls to be proud of.
