As we get older we seem to roll our eyes at the number of candles that seem to be accruing on our cake. We wish we were younger, we wish we could go back in time to when we were skinnier, life was simpler or we didn't have gray hair. But this is not the mentality we should have.
We need to celebrate each candle, each year we have on this Earth.
Terry made the most of his time here with us and I look forward to the day when I can hug him again and hear his laugh. Today is going to be a hard day for us because we so badly wish he was here. I know tears will be shed, but I also want to smile. So I'm going to tell Aiden funny stories about his grandpa, hug my husband and family a little tighter and be thankful for the time we had together celebrating life.
