one moment.

A lifetime is not what is between
the moments of birth and death.
A lifetime is one moment
Between my two little breaths.
The present, the here, the now,
That's all the life I get.
I live each moment in full,
In kindness, in peace, without regret.

Thank you so much for all of the kind words and thoughts. A beautiful thing about blogging is being able to reach out and have so much support return. You are all wonderful! G has had a rough few days, but seems to be past the very worst of it. I hope all that is left is just that he has to muddle through this nasty cold.

I'm so glad things are looking a little better!
You still have our most fervent well-wishes, of course.

I am glad your son seems to be doing better. It can be so scary. I have asthma and therefore I never take for granted the ability to breath.

So happy to hear your boy is feeling better ....and that you are able to relax a bit as well. Here's to more progress and recovery!

I'm glad that your son is through the worst of it. You must be exhausted from the stress of such a scary time. I love the quote in this post.

Hey there! I stumbled on your blog, love the quote (though sorry to hear that your little man had such a scary episode!)
I used to live in Madison (on Jenny st) and SO LOVE that city, I'm stoked to have found you and get a little glimpse into a wonderful place and what looks like your very inspiring life! :)

Thanks everyone. I have been realizing this week that 'better' is relative. He's in the thick of it, and it is going on and on, but hopefully will feel better and not just worse and worse. Sweet boy.
