Day One Hundred – January 8, 2010

Looking back 10 years ago today…

I’m smiling.

Actually, I have tears running down my cheeks. Memories are powerful things and these posts are a time capsule for me and my family. My grandmother kept a written daily journal and I thought it was neat but now I know the power of documenting your life. Facebook and Instagram are wonderful for that but it isn’t your inner thoughts and a dialog of what was really going on. Oh the things we don’t share! This retrospective makes me want to look back on my apples in another 10 years…

Today’s post brings back the memories of a road trip my Mom and I took starting 10 years ago today. We still laugh and talk about this first day of our drive north and that moment my Dad messaged us from Tokyo (the juxtaposition of him being on the other side of the world and we hadn’t made it out of Florida just makes us laugh)!

The tears are for today and thinking about my Mom – oh how I love her! She is battling stage IV metastatic melanoma. Her bravery and resiliency have always inspired me but now I am in awe. And today’s apple is a very large window to me and my current life too. Yesterday’s apple was so apropos and here we are again with one that seems to be life circling around.
