First Day of School

Today is the first day of school for the girls.  Every year, it makes me sad, only because I am so amazed at how fast they grow.  This year, I was sad but didn't cry, and had an additional thought in my head: I won't get to share milestones like the first day of school with Olivia.  Of course, I already knew this, it was no surprise.  Every "first" Aubrey and Elli have has been different since last July and will forever be different for the rest of our lives. 

I think this helps me appreciate life and what we are given, and I am thankful.  My heart hurts some times more than others.  Right now, it hurts.
