A Beautiful Day

This is traditionally the weekend I attend the Spruce Meadows Masters in Calgary, Alberta. This would have been my 20th anniversary year. Due to some other commitments, however, I had to miss this year’s competition. In hindsight, though, I’m glad that I stayed home with my family. With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 over the weekend, spending time at home and reflecting on all that’s happened over the past decade became the focal point.

Cameron doesn’t remember 9/11; he was just 17 months old, but having grown up in the aftermath he understands the significance of the events. We watched the special programming on TV this morning and then spent the afternoon playing golf as a family. It was a beautiful day to spend together—sharing something we all enjoy on a perfect late summer day. Many thousands of people lost loved ones 10 years ago today, and 9/11 always reminds me that you never know what tomorrow will bring, so do your best to live today to its fullest with the people you love.
