I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. – Lily Tomlin

Happiness

They were surprisingly chipper to be awakened at such an early hour.  However, it was only the first day of school.

I’m certain by next Thursday, they won’t be so happy to get up.  But there they went, my babies…. now in the 4th and 5th grade.  My son’s last year in elementary school…

I’m not ashamed to admit that I did get a little teary eyed seeing them get on that bus yesterday, but then my daughter turned to me through the window with her wave goodbye and her blown kiss and I knew that they would be fine.

“Listen to the MUSTN’T’s, child,
Listen to the DON’T’s,
Listen to the SHOULDN’T’s,
The IMPOSSIBLE’s, the WON’T’s,
Listen to the NEVER HAVE’s,
Then listen close to me —
Anything can happen, child,
Anything can be.”  –Shel Silverstein
