As I think about navigating these bumpy seas, I hold this thought close to my heart.
"It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself." ~Joyce Maynard
If you have a moment in the day, say a prayer for the Japanese, for those in harm's way, for your neighbor and for our children.
