In life, we always have a choice. This week I chose to enjoy every day, every hour, every second.
On Monday, I took my daughter to the playground to enjoy this above average weather we’ve been having for November. The quality time we spent together was priceless.
In the evening was my son’s dance recital. Someone was able to stay late for me at work so I could see my son’s performance before my night shift. I was grateful for the favor. He’s growing quickly as all children do and I want to enjoy every moment of his life.
On Tuesday, my wife and I brought our daughter to Sunnybrook hospital down in the city for her developmental check up. The staff were delighted to see her. I am grateful for all the staff there that devote their time and genuinely care. They are truly amazing.
On Wednesday, my wife, daughter and I went to my son’s school for the remembrance day assembly. The kids put on a beautiful performance to honour all those who served for their country.
In the afternoon, we went to go and pick up some branches from pine trees off the side of the road that had been cut down for future development. We plan to use the branches for decorating the exterior of the house for the Christmas season. I’m looking forward to seeing what my wife will create with that wonderful imagination of hers. I know it will look beautiful.
Today I got to pick up my son from the bus stop after school. We enjoyed the walk home together, we always make each other laugh, he’s almost five and full of life, it’s contagious.
We enjoyed a movie as a family while eating dinner tonight. Watching the kids dance to the music in the movie is priceless. Thier carefree attitude makes for some of the best dance moves. They have so much energy. I love it.
Now I could have mentioned all the less positive things that happened over the week, but why?
This week I chose to do something different. I chose to let go of all the negativity, and continually reflect and embrace all the great things that happened. I am very grateful for the choice that I made.
