Golden Glory

“Look at everything as though you were seeing it
either for the first or last time,
then your time on earth will be filled with glory.”

Betty Smith


On a personal note, today you will find me in Chapel Hill, NC, visiting my son and his fiancée. We have much to celebrate – their engagement, the completion of his MBA program and their upcoming move to Austin, TX where they will begin the next chapter in their life together.

My beautiful daughter is getting married in September to a wonderful young man and these past months have been a happy whirlwind of wedding planning activity.

Life is good – today, especially, I am one happy and grateful Mom! Happy Mother’s Day!

I’ll  be around to visit you upon my return.
