the emotional climate in this family can sometimes be wildly unpredictable. we often need to stop and take a few deep breaths (or a mommy time-out). at the end of the day i sometimes find myself saying to my son, and myself, "tomorrow is a new day". i realize that i've said it often enough that he now reminds me... "tomorrow's a new day, mom." this is something i have always tried to teach him, that each day, each moment really, is new...

opportunity to be happy,
to make better choices,
to find a new adventure,
to make new wishes,
to do things differently,
to try something new,
to reach outside of ourselves,
to be grateful for all we have,
to find a better way,
to be one step closer,
to learn from our mistakes,
to move towards hope,
to laugh and play,
to forgive and forget,
to make magic,
to believe anything is possible...

and thus, he is teaching me.

i'm slowly learning :)
