We just spent such an amazing week full of snuggles, laughter, and late night conversations with Tyler's mom - who the kids call Honey.
Of course, she is great at loving the kids and spoiling them with endless playtime, but she is also really great at asking all the right questions. What are our goals, what is realistic, how will our expectations for life unfold over the next few years?
When I met her nearly 16 years ago, I was amazed at how relaxed, comfortable, and set in a routine she was. Her life seemed so easy and predictable. But the truth is, her life has had many challenges including cancer, a career change, and so much more.
This last week has been a reminder that I should never compare my beginning to someone else's middle or end. If I work hard, set goals, and do my best, one day I will be able sit back with my grandchildren and share my wisdom.
