Gratitude...

I wanted to take this opportunity to say, "Thank you!" So rarely do we get the opportunity to express our gratitude for the blessings in our lives. I wish that I had shown my appreciation a little more, especially towards those who are no longer with us. I would have said, "You make my life better by being in it."

Each moment is a treasure. If anything I've learned, it's that time is precious and we should cherish what we have. Thank you. Thank you! THANK YOU!

The auction of the necklace I made in honor of my friend, Amelia Geocos, is now closed. Her mom, Marian, placed the winning bid. It feels right that the necklace should go to her. Amelia was an incredible person and I think that her upbringing played a big part of that. I am grateful to her for raising such an amazing person. My life was better for having Amelia in it. I am a better person for having known her.

I also wanted to thank everyone who bid and did not win, to everyone who donated to the Memorial scholarship, to everyone who sent a kind note, and to everyone who passed the word along. I appreciate your support and your help in allowing me to honor my friend. Thank you!

I watched the sun set today. I took a moment to remember my friend. I said THANK YOU to the wind, to the sun, to the green of the grass and the fading pink of the sky in hopes that she heard me and knows what an impact she left on me. Please, take a moment and say THANK YOU to those that you love and care for. Each moment is precious.
