Happy Memorial Day!

Today is a day to remember those who have served our country to maintain the freedom that we hold so dear.
Ten years ago on Memorial Day, my family was faced with the grim reality of our Mother's health after an emergency surgery. Fifty-three days later she was gone. Gone, oh how could that be? But I still learn from her and wonderful example. Today as you reflect on the past, and face the future, don't forget to enjoy this moment...the only one we are promised.
Happy Memorial Day!
Love, Rachel

It sounds like you had one special mother!

I know that I am valuing even more the fact that I still have my parents. I just turned 50 and I am learning to appreciate everyone and everything moment to moment.

Thanks for sharing,
KJ
