With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose. Wayne W. Dyer (via hashpe)

Taking a moment to appreciate my son and everything he&#8217;s brought to my life. Never will I take him for granted, nor the times we share. The future is a mystery and none of us may know how much time we have left together. Treasure each moment. Love unrestrained. Always say what needs to be said. And remember to always forgive and never hold on to anger hurt or pain. We may never know when our time together will end, so I will always make the most of it. &lt;3
