I will say being J-man's mom has definitely helped me pay attention to the little things in life. The simple pieces of the puzzle. When they fall into place, there is no missing them. No ignoring or having them pass by unnoticed. The smallest gain, the simplest milestone is noticed and honored and cherished. It is a double edge sword, of course, because the lags and delays are there too, and every 'problem' makes me afraid we have a Problem. I notice them too.
But one thing that I hope J-man comes to know about his mommy is that ... if I am anything... I am present and aware of him. The whole of him.
And that every single moment matters.
