April 2nd Greetings From North Carolina ~

 Don't get caught up in other people's expectations. 
Don't take anything for granted, either...

Seeing mom and dad again sure makes my heart happy, 
and it sure made it even happier to see Rima, (again)
 George and Mala.  Very good and happy surprise.

Being in North Carolina at their home I can fully understand 
why it would be so difficult to leave.  Nothing to do with 
the enormousness of the house, but more to do with the 
serenity and peacefulness of the surroundings. 

My sisters and their families we all find this to be the most
 relaxing of places.  It's where we all go when we need to tune out
 from our crazy lifestyles  for a few days.  It's heaven on earth.  
After a few days we are ready to tackle the world again. 

For the next couple of days we relax and just spend quality time 
with my parents.  Everyday I know how fortunate we are to have this
 opportunity to spend time with them.  I never take it for granted.

The depth of the love of parents for their children cannot
 be measured.  It is like no other relationship. It exceeds concern
 for life itself. The love of a parent for a child is continuous
 and transcends heartbreak and disappointment...
