One Baby's Bucket List

I was moved by this mom's story, she talks about how she had to adjust her ever changing bucket list after the birth of her special needs daughter, and how she learned to enjoy the simplet things in life: 

There was a silver lining to the trauma we experienced in the first year of my daughter's life. Just as I truly "saw" the tree for the first time, and the wonder of nature to change the color of its leaves, I learned to strip away the unessential in our new family, to focus on the joys of life's simple moments, and to savor my baby's small victories on her way to becoming a little girl.
