• "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" --Mary Oliver

  • Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the little voice inside you the yells, "can't!" But you don't listen; you just push harder and then you hear the voice whisper "can" and you realize the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

You are right about that last line. I struggled to write about 9-11 but couldn't -- wounds still too painful from seeing the smoke in DC, being terrified that something would happen to me and to yet-unborn Mimi (I was 6 months poregnant.)

Having kids is the scariest thing, EVER. Especially after that day. bringing them into the world is definitely an act of faith.

You are sure right about that. I think we just have to keep reminding ourselves to laugh and have fun and enjoy it all because we don;t get a do-over, and we never know when the ride is over.
