Yes!!!!... lets dance!!! turn it uuuup!!!! and then with our latest favorite song ¨Sugar¨, of lets say Emi´s crush... Adam Levine... we danced.. and twirled and laughed! and just like that we celebrated a simple, ordinary yet so extraordinary day!
I am a dreamer, I believe in fairy tales, I believe in love and I believe in friendship, and I think life is beautiful... and yet am human and also get caught up in Monday to Friday routines, tight schedules... and wanting to do nothing weekends. Sometimes I am with my girls, but then again am not really... sometimes as I´ve said before am just rushing by. Then this last week (fortunately this little story am about to write has a happy ending and it was just a moment of fear) I felt a little bump in my breast that scared the sh... out of me, and just like that time stopped, it froze, everything shut down, everything turned quite for a day....
As positive as I am, in situations like this I always fear the worse. I don´t even want to say all the things that crossed my mind that day, but let´s say I just panicked at the thought of not being here for my girls in the little ordinary moments of our everyday life, which a lot of times we take for granted... like braiding hair in the morning, driving to school, or praying with the girls at night, or being asked about a million times which outfit works best for whatever occasion, bathing Ari, rocking her to sleep, talking about their days, and friends and homework... sitting there to watch Emi dance, while Ari is playing around and Ale is on her hands. I thought about all the times we sing to the top of our lungs, and dance like crazy people in the car, I thought about Emi´s headaches, how she kisses me a million times a day, and Ale´s teenager mood swings, and how no matter what she´ll always crack a smile for me.... I didn´t think about special days, or special occasions, or vacations... I just thought about what makes our life real and ours... Fortunately the bump was nothing, and I have thanked God on my knees for that. I thanked Him with all my might for being able to be here raising my girls, for being healthy, and also for having been able to stop for a day and again put things into perspective, in their rightful order.
And with that in mind... we gathered our girls on Sunday and drove to the beach. The Caribbean is only a mere 3 tunnel and 30 minute drive, yet.... we often forget is there, not this time!
have a great week! and don´t forget to stop and breath... breath it all in, or breath it all out!
Life is a special occasion.... cherish every moment, every kiss, every tear, every laugh... cherish the little and the big..... and you know what?!?! dance, let go and celebrate, jump, run, kiss somebody.... you are alive!
