Life is funny.  One day it’s roses and rainbows and the next you could get a punch in the face when it’s least expected.  Forest Gump’s mother was right about the box of chocolates. 

Having my husband, Jim, in hospice has made me realize just how many of us get caught up in our busy schedules and take the small things in life for granted. 

Spending more time with our family, saying “I love you” and just being there for them is more precious than any material item you can give.

It’s the attention we give, the empathy we have and the love we share that makes every day a gift.

I am spending everyday with Jim, and will also continue to publish Designers Circle as usual.

Thank you all for the support, thoughts and prayers you have given us.
