I believe that children are our future, ……

27 May

On Thursday I had the fun and privilege of watching my 5 year old granddaughter at her pre-K graduation, hopefully just one of many milestones to come.  Her smile and excitement was priceless!

A beautiful slide show of the class, from toddlers to pre-K graduates, made me again realize how fast that time flies.  It seems like yesterday that she was born, and now I can have regular conversations with her.  I will turn around, and she will be graduating high school.

I am thankful every day for the good health of my grandchildren, and part of the reason that they are healthy, is that they have been vaccinated on time in accordance with CDC recommendations.  I had to wonder, how many of the kids up there, weren’t vaccinated on time, or maybe weren’t vaccinated at all?

I thought of the son I had lost, and how precious the memories I have of him are.  Those memories will have to last me a lifetime, because there won’t be any new ones.

Don’t take your child’s good health for granted.  Keep them healthy, savor each day with them, because those days are truly a gift.
