“Life–so precious, so beautiful . . . indeed a gift for it is here one day and taken for granted. The ability to get up and walk, to listen to the cicadas on this beautiful evening, to feel and luxuriate in the warm fragrant bath water. Oh yes–all a gift; savor it; feel it; see it; hear it; smell it; but most of all appreciate it. For like the life of a beautiful fragrant rose, it is here one moment and cruelly snatched away. A lesson for us all. (So on this beautiful evening of Monday, Sept, 1, 1997 at 9:15 p.m., I am counting myself lucky indeed. I want to awaken all my senses; I want to be alive in every possible way. I want to SAVOR it all. I will begin by being more in tune physically, emotionally and spiritually). Life is good . . . to life!!” (“The passing of Princess Diana makes one pause and think . . .”)
Dedicated with all my love to Donald and Diane Sheer! Diane was my beautiful mother and I am proud to share her thoughts.
