Without new experiences something inside of us sleeps.
One must awaken the sleeper.  A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles...

I am just grateful to be able to spend these last few days with my mom and dad.  I don't
 really care where we are.  As long as we are together my day is always going to be a
 good one.  My mom is one of those women who never complains no matter what life 
throws her way.  She handles everything with a dignity and strength that I can only 
hope to one day master, even a little like her.  When she hurts, she never lets us know. 

If she's sad she rarely lets on.  She is forever the one who encourages us.  Pushes us 
to be better and no matter what she is always positive.  She is the kind of woman 
I hope to one day be like.  If only a little.  When I was a little girl back in
 Guyana and the teacher asked who our role model was, there was never
 any doubt.  Always my mom and dad.  Still is and always will be.

For me just having coffee with her is a pleasure.  Sitting and listening to my dad tell 
stories to Arvid and I is special.  You see when my dad tells his stories, Arivd also 
tells stories from his childhood.  The evenings become a trip down memory 
lane for both of my parents, Arvid and I.  Some of the best times are spent  
 exchanging stories.  Would not change it for anything in the world.

Wish you all a very good day.  Sometimes the simple things in life are the best.
At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.

Good morning everyone.  It is a beautiful day here in the Smoky Mountains.

Acknowledging the good that you already have in
 your life is the foundation for all abundance...
