One of D's young relatives died suddenly yesterday. I do not have words to express my feelings today, so I give you CJ's. Part of me will always remember this young man as the 3 year old boy who charmed the guests at our wedding by catching my garter. It is one of my favorite wedding reception memories.
Yesterday reminded me how important it is to hold our children close. I want to reach across the world and gather in my niece and nephews and all my honorary nieces and nephews and tell them I will always love them and be proud of them no matter what happens. Please reach out to the young people in your life this week and do the same.
