My parents' visit is winding down, although we have one perfect week left together. We just got back from the beach and I have been reminded to find the beauty in my life. Our house was clean until two minutes after we arrived when our luggage threw up dirty clothes and sand. But the great thing is that we went and all came home again. That's worth all the laundry and dirt in the world to me.
I want to be mindful about connecting with my kids, to seize the moments we have. To start over each day, to find the courage to keep trying to do things better. I want to help them be themselves.
