Don't worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worry is effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday.
Today I am grateful for whatever time we have on this earth to tell our children we love them. To hold them. To mess up their hair. To listen to their stories. To hear them laugh at our own.
It's all too fleeting to take for granted.
