We bought greeting cards for every milestone for each of our children from now until adulthood – Birthdays, Graduations, Weddings, Babies etc. Simon will be writing and signing during his free time. It was really tough organizing the cards and thinking ahead to each event, knowing he probably won’t be there unless a miracle happens.
Day to day is manageable.
Living life in the moment is doable.
The future is the hardest to digest.
Today was a day to cry and cry some more.
We both did.
But we’re thankful that we get the opportunity to prepare.
And there is joy in imagining how our kids will be when they’re older.
Maybe Simon should write a preemptive warning/thank you to our middle daughter’s future husband…
