March 26 – Today marks 12 years

Thursday, March 26, 2015

This morning a family, just cities away faced unfathomable heartbreak. Twelve years ago our family could have had the same ending. Somehow, she and we survived.

It has been a journey filled with uncertainty, fear and pain. It has also been filled with unconditional love, gratitude and joy.

I woke this morning with both of my children and future daughter-in-law all under one roof. I am blessed. Another family started their day not realizing it was the last they would have together.

Life as you know it can change in a moment. Treasure the ones that count. Don’t trivialize or take them for granted and don’t give magnitude to those that do not.

When you come to the edge of the light you know and are about to step off into the darkness, faith is knowing one of two things will happen… there will be something solid to stand on, or you will learn to fly
