Spring break is almost over for the boys, and even though we had made some plans to hang out and do a couple of fun things, between the City of Hope appointments and me getting sick, we didn't do anything. The thing I love about our boys though is that they didn't complain at all, Arman even said, as long as there is no school, it's vacation enough for him. So, I finally made some time this afternoon, and took them to Venice beach for lunch and just to hang around a bit. It was a beautiful day, the weather was so nice and we had a really good time.
As we air guitared our way through traffic blasting Aerosmith's "Sweet Emotion" on the radio, for those few brief moments, right then, we had not a care in the world. We rocked all the way to the beach. Music has an amazing therapeutic magic, it doesn't matter what you listen to, but a good air guitar jam session is worth a hundred visits to the therapist couch.
It was a great day, and the boys and I really enjoyed spending the day together. I guess, we were able to steal a few good hours from today. If we can all do that everyday, even steal just a few happy moments from each day, like water drops gathering in a bucket, it won't be long before we have a bucket full of great moments we can look back on.
