Because of you I am reminded of these seemingly simple, everyday things . . .
- The "stuff" really does not matter.
- The sweetest sound in the world is your child's voice, especially laughter.
- Silly quibbles with our loved ones are just that.
- Time with family and friends is irreplaceable.
- Prayer is a powerful and uniting force.
- God is the source of hope and love.
And in this season of giving, I thank you, Flip, for these reflections. What a present from someone I have not seen in 20 years.
My hope, my prayer is that you are given the opportunity to experience these gifts on Earth again. Until then, thank you.
