Thank you, Caroline. I love this!!! Especially the last one, since my only sibling just died.

Of course you may use my blog post for today on May 6th; I'd be honored, and that's my husband's 60th birthday!!!

Love,
Jen

This is so true, and it really places perspective on things. I lost a sibling in late 2011. Never take anyone for granted.

Thanks for sharing this, Caroline.

Happy Mother's Day weekend,
