In the early 1980’s there was a dessert place in Seattle, that had the marketing slogan, “Eat Dessert First, Life Is Uncertain!”
Arden and I adopted this as a family motto. Circumstances always remind us that life is uncertain. It is important to find enjoyment in life and don’t put off things that you want to do.
Nick is doing great today. He is tired and has a lot of extra seizure medicine on board because of last nights seizure extravaganza, but he says “I better and I feel fine.” We can’t ask for more.
I feel like we are often standing on the proverbial street corner, beating our drum to get attention, with our message, “Do what makes you happy. Care for others and spend time connecting with the ones that you love.”
But believing this has made all the difference to us when the storms come. We feel so blessed today with the outpouring of messages of love and concern that we have received from around the world. We are grateful for you all.
We are always a bit emotional the day we leave Ireland for the States, today we feel it even more keenly. Hopefully all will be well with Nick as we travel over the next two and a half days to get home. Again, thank you. We certainly do “Feel the love.”
