It’s so easy to go back to a pattern, to take each day for granted, to think we have forever, to not think of our lives as a vapor, a few brief moments then puff, they are gone; we forget times like our accident, that remind us how brief our lives really are. That is why we celebrate the anniversary of our accident.

My daughter left today. You’d think I’d get used to it. I don’t. When my daughter visits from across the ocean, we stop the busy-to-do-lifestyle life. We go to indie coffee shops and on long walks in the neighborhood and make sure we meet with friends and family.

It was one of those mornings. Making school lunches, signing permission slips, trying to figure out the after school agenda, calculating rides home, trying to arrange doctors appointments.

My twins, age 16, individually texted me yesterday asking if they could have their friend Tyler over, to spend the night.
