One week before Christmas, 2017 on a cozy Sunday afternoon, I received a phone call from my youngest daughter’s soulmate. He asked me to go with him to give my blessing on the engagement ring he was going to buy for her. It took me only a second to say YES! Once at the lovely jewelry store, I was soon holding that beautiful ring next to the wonderful person who would love and cherish her forever. Right then and there her life flashed before my eyes, and on Christmas Day they were engaged! Life is full of many sweet surprises for all of us, and the true gift is protecting the moments that become our cherished memories.

Have a beautiful week!
