Birthday Month - Day 5

Dear Kennedy & Ethan,

I can't wait to see what the Universe has lined up for me out there... While there are many things to learn from this life - this may be the biggest...

The great moments of your life won't necessarily be the things you do...they'll also be the things that happen to you.

Now I'm not saying you can't take action to affect the outcome of your life - you have to take action - and you will - but never forget that on any day you can step out the front door and your whole life can change forever. You see - the Universe has a plan kids...and that plan is always in motion. A butterfly flaps its' wings and it starts to rain. It's a scary thought - but it's also kind of wonderful! All these little parts of the machine - constantly working...making sure that you end up exactly where you're supposed to be - exactly when you're supposed to be there. The right place at the right time.

So...there you have it kids... There's a lot of little reasons why the big things in our lives happen. If I had known then where all those little things were leading me and how grateful I'd be to get there - well...I probably would have done something like this... Somehow I ended up at the right place at the right time and as a result my life has never been the same.

Love Always,

P.S. - I didn't craft these words...Stephen Lloyd did on an episode of How I Met Your Mother...

...but I sure felt them...and I was compelled to share them with you...


  1. Hey Karen,

    What can I say that these two smiles are saying. BTW-great letter.

    LOL, Linda

  2. Such beautiful and wonderful thoughts to share with the little ones...

  3. I love How I met your Mother and remember these words... so glad you shared them with your niece and nephew and boy are they gorgeous!
