Every so often, I spend a day with my oldest daughter. Yesterday was one of those days.
I’m reminded how often we take such days for granted. When we were laughing to the point of tears, others were crying over loved ones lost in the synagogue attack.
I have no words today to express the love I have for all the members of my family. How much I appreciate and admire each and every one of them. What a big hole there would be in my life if anything ever happened to any. We may not see each other often, talk much or at all, but they’re stamped solidly on my heart forever.
Today my challenge is to remember those loved ones. The ones with us and the ones who have departed. Allow yourself to smile over the memories because they will live on. Tell your children and grandchildren your memories before they’re gone.
My sincere sympathies to anyone who has experienced a loss of a loved one. I wish you all peace and comfort today.
