Today Jamie Ridler's prompt is "Where do you wish to send some love?"
My first thought, of course, is to send LOTS of love with my kids as they head back to college. The girls leave this weekend and Elliot will be going back in a couple weeks. They will all be taking pieces of my heart with them.
Arielle and Ceara turn 19 on Saturday. I remember loving them so much when they were babies that I thought I was going to burst. Nineteen years later I realize that the love I felt then was nothing compared to my feelings for these girls now. We have such a capacity to love and it seems to just increase and overflow with the passage of time.
With Elliot's MRI coming up next week, my thoughts lately have been on all the children and families whose lives have been touched by brain tumors. Even though he's been doing SO well, I always tend to get in a bit of a funk in the days leading up to his MRIs. We have been so lucky but I know there are families out there that are struggling with the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. They need all the love we can possibly wish for them. I hope you join me in sending your love their way.
