Memories!

In the living of life, we are often so focused on goals and objectives…where we hope to go…where we want to go, that we neglect to celebrate the moments that happen to us, after all life is really moments one after another. I have always been a goal orientated person, and I believe we should aim high…
“There are no limits but the sky”

In the climb…we must not forget the journey!

I am thinking today about some of the moments that have lingered…and became a part of me.

That 5th day of August 1986, at the All Saint's Episcopal Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas I met him! 

I met, I held... my first born son, Brian for the first time!

Words are simply a desperately inadequate vehicle, to carry to anyone reading this,  my feeling…
