“Life is full of give and take. Give thanks and take nothing for granted.” –Unknown
Today I received the call that all parents fear – the call from school saying that your child has been hurt. Recently, my mind has been swamped with a myriad of thoughts and concerns about everything from school to family to world issues. I’m not the only one this happens to. But today as I rushed away from work to be with my son who had fallen, hit his head, and was being transported to hospital via ambulance, all those thoughts and concerns melted away. It is difficult to see your child in trouble or in pain, but there was no place I would have rather been. As I comforted him, I was reminded that in reality, there are few things in life that are truly important. Our biggest challenge in life it to maintain perspective and balance, appreciate what we have, and to filter the ‘noise’.
