It is hard enough keeping up with Holidays these days. Every time I turn around there is another event and great occasion. When I was younger I can remember being in grade school and the teacher making a point out of making and giving each other Valentines Day cards. I remember that I could always count on receiving that little token of gesture.
Today, I have become more refined and I really don't know if that is a good thing yet. It was the basic little things in life that really made me happy. I could count on them, I looked forward to them, and it really meant an awful lot to me.
Make no mistake about it; I am very, very grateful for what I have at the moment, but life one day just got up and took off at an alarming speed. We control everything to a degree with time management, but there never quite seems to be enough time in the day. Perhaps it is a constant notion to take a moment out, reflect, and really value how short life is, and the gift we have should never be taken for granted.
I still maintain my measurement in life, and any achievement that needs to be measured is my wonderful young son Spencer; I look at him and I can't help to think how hard it is to be a kid these days.
One thing I do know is that he has a great heart, is a giving individual, and I think lately he is able to handle challenges sometimes a little easier than his Dad. I know he has had his share of avenues lately. I am his biggest fan, and the look he gives me every time I kiss his face is typical of a teenager at times. It only takes a minute though for him to come back with that priceless smile. There isn't a day that goes by I don't tell him I love him. It means a lot to me that a soon to be fourteen year old that is 5'10" and 165 pounds will give me a hug that is stronger than that of a gorilla. I measure everything by days now, but my son's meaning to me will always be infinite. Even Lars will make sure to give him big wet slurp often.
With Valentine Day being around the corner perhaps we can take shelter in knowing what has got us to lengths was not the large obstacles, but all the little ones we had to measure up to, and add up to complete a whole. I often over state one of my best sayings but it holds so true today:
"It's not the number of breaths we take, but rather the moments that take our breath away."
For this I applaud my son Spencer and let him know my heart will always be largely filled with him, and that I will love him with all my heart and soul until the day I cease to breath anymore.
My question lately tends to ask myself if all the little pieces of paper in the World could ever add up to a head full of memories? Perhaps when times are trying for people these days we have to remember we have the ability to touch our lives, and to let them know that they have really made a difference in our lives, and they always will.
Happy Valentines day to my wonderful son Spencer, and everyone else in the World.
See you at closing!
Make a difference in someone's life and let them know what they mean to you!
