Tyler's Visit to the Neurologist
Thank you once again for all your support and prayers regarding the scare with
Yesterday we met the Top pediatric neurologist around. - Dr. Puri and yes, he was awesome.
Even though Dr. Puri shared that
In the meantime, life goes on - but definitely with a whole new perspective.
As I shared in my newsletter and blog post, as a Mom, it is so very important to stop and take a moment to appreciate the little things around you. Next to our own needs, one of the biggest areas that is easily gets overlooked in our super busy lives, is time with our children. It is one thing to be by their side and keep a watchful eye, but it is a totally different experience when you put yourself in the moment with them.
There are hundreds of precious moments that we miss out on due to our over-scheduled, stressed out, chaotic days.
Life is not meant to be spent this way. In the end...what will the stress leave with you...or think about it like this....what is it stealing away?
We are so very fortunate as Mother's to have this constant reminder provided by our children.
Take time out for you and your children.
Look into their eyes and really listen to what they are saying. They have many valuable lessons to teach us.
"Mommy? What if the Dr. finds something wrong with my brain?"
I explained to
"Mommy? Are you like a Star Wars character?"
I was curious and asked "What do you mean?"
"Star Wars characters can sense things and you can sense that there is nothing wrong."
Ah, the magical thinking of children. And in their eyes, we are their super heroes. Why not go one step further than just saving and protecting them and actually do them the honor of stepping into their world and touching their lives in a way that no one can.
My Mom just sent this quote to me -it fits quite well with this message:
Soul cannot exist when our connections in life remain superficial. An experience of soul requires that we take time to be fully present to the details of our lives.
Explore what happens when you take the time to STOP and PAY ATTENTION. When we choose to slow down and really experience the qualities of our lives, we get a whole new perspective on what living’s all about.
'We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.'
