So these two people I know read my blog every post.  My mom pulls in up on her ipad for her morning read.  They are my two biggest fans…….so THANK YOU needs to be said and I want them to read it here as sometimes I am not best with the spoken word.  Writing is far more my thing.


They are the best parents and I am so lucky I got in their line when it was time for that selection process……..and the best grandparents….


Also, I am lucky to consider them friends and my friends just love them too.  How many people can say that?

So thank you Mom and Dad… both keep the train on the tracks and the life lessons from taking us out.  You remind us of what it is all about and give us a great example everyday.  Dad, my friend Bonnie found this and it was written for you…Pickles By Brian Crane


I love you! Now hope Mom reads this early and keeps the early morning tea service in bed.❤ I thank her for that too!

Remember, remember, remember dear girl…..that just about everything that is worth anything has a little bit (or a lot) of struggle attached to it…and that the struggle builds the goodness and makes for the sweetness….and will never ever let us forget how much we sacrificed for all that is good.  Don’t stop now. Don’t you dare give up. Keep going……it is gonna be sooo worth it.”
