Time to give thanks to my family for the incredible support they have shown me over the years. They might not have fully understood why I would walk away from a life in medicine, but they never wavered in their belief in me. They also told me not to screw it up with the SO who is now the Wife.
I remember when my sister was being married. I saw this light from the heavens hitting the aisle and I just knew that my parents were there. In my wedding, it was when the brother-in-law sang that I remembered my parents. I almost started crying right up there in the altar.
I enjoy life as I go along. Savoring each day. I try to live in the now instead of yearning for the past.
