One day, nearly 13 yeas ago, my then five year old gave me a gift I’ll never forget. After a particularly hard day working and balancing the demands of being a “hands-on mom of four boys” I was in my bedroom with the door shut feeling overwhelmed, when I heard a little knock. It was my third born Evan. He had a bright pink picnic tray filled with everything he could find from the kitchen that he thought would make me smile; a cup of yogurt with flowers from the yard stuck in it, some graham crackers and milk, a cup of orange juice, and a heavy dose of sprinkles covering the tray. He placed it on the floor in front of me and proudly stated “mom, you’ve got to have a little party everyday!”. And we sat on the floor that day and indeed did have a party.
Today, as a focused and busy professional, I have that bit of advice written on a yellow stick on my computer. It’s so cliché but so true. The years pass through the sands of time SO quickly. I want to celebrate life daily.
I am very fortunate to love the work I do on a daily basis. I love the beauty of this world and working with plastic surgeons. Share a little wisdom you’ve learned, and post a comment back — I’d love to hear from you.
