Today, I won’t look back. As tempting as it is – it makes me sad – it makes me cry. And I don’t want to cry.
Today, I want to smile. I want to feel the joy of the sunshine, the anticipation of ceremonies and fetes. To live in the moment – to live for tomorrow – to enjoy life with my family and friends.
Today, I look for tomorrow.
It’s David’s last day at his elementary school. He leaves behind a legacy – he is the last of our three children to leave that school. First Ben, then Katya, now David. The LePages have left the building.
Today, I am grateful for everything they have learned at that school. This, is a French school – where my children learned to be French. They learned the language, the culture, the joie de vivre.
Today, aujourd’hui, David prepares to bid that school adieu. Because tomorrow he closes that chapter and begins a new book.
Summer is here – time to unwind – time to gear up for fun. It is time for play – for David.
Today, I won’t look back. I will look ahead. I will watch as my baby takes another step.
