As the school year comes to a close, our family has had time to reflect on the year we worked through and locate the bright side of it all.
Our family endured two medication changes, a biopsy, a concussion, 64 doctor views on the biopsy, months of steroids, marks like a cheetah for months, a mysterious eye funk, new scars inside and out, a mangled foot, an ambulance ride in a different state, and too many “I’m not sure” or “I do not knows” responses.
We close the year by putting those in the rear view. We choose to move forward and not look back. Though the moments and challenges brought us down at times, the bright side keeps us moving forward.
Our successes included Superintendent’s List, a communion, a character award, new friendships, a new instrument, a new sport, a new club, a gala, a golf outing, and the publication of a book. We choose to celebrate the moments that made us proud and joyful. We choose to recall the challenges to remind us to grow and endure.
The Rear View is a perfect lens to see shortcomings, learn from failures, and reflect on success.
The rain comes and goes, but the rainbows make it all worth it.
Reflect. Reset. Leave it in the Rear View.
