May 18 – My oldest sister who died, a mother of six, at the age of 38, from a brain tumor would be 80 today! My only other sister died six years ago yesterday! Four months ago I had near death experiences and was in the hospital for almost 12 days. The fragility of life – the preciousness of life. So few of us are afforded the opportunity of what we are meant to do and we all have to be about the business of everyday life. I feel that I am returning to life with a feeling of deep gratitude for the abundance of graces and blessings bestowed. This sense of blessing comes with the responsibility to act on behalf of the greater good for the greatest number. What are your thoughts as we approach Memorial Day?
