Reflection




This past Tuesday my daughter underwent surgery. Jackie is now home and on the road to recovery. Spending hours in waiting rooms, hospital rooms and running back and forth has given me the opportunity to realize how very fortunate we are.

I'd like to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy Spring, Joyful Easter and may your Easter basket be filled with love (and a little chocolate!)

And my heartfelt thank you to all those brave men and women fighting in a war zone and to their families and loved ones spending yet another holiday waiting for their safe return.

Hello Susan,
Best wishes to you for a Happy Easter and wonderful spring...I am glad everything is well with you and your loved ones...I feel truly blessed and have much to be thankful for. Holidays are that are spent being away from family and loved ones are hard, I have a brother who was in the marines and overseas, he is now home with his children and family and we are truly thankful for him and the thousands of others who
give up their comforts and self for us to be safe and secure...God Bless them and keep them safe...Happy Easter Susan to you and yours Pinkie Denise
