082619 They do not possess superpowers and they do not wear capes, but here I am with my heroes. They are heroes in their own right.

This was during dinner tonight with the extended family on National Heroes Day.

081719 With the challenges of menopause, I’m extremely grateful for days without bouts of debilitating anxiety, panic attack, palpitation, internal vibration, etc. Recently, I came across an FB focus group that discusses all the ills of this dreaded phase and I am so so so glad to know my feelings are not unique to me.

My take-away is: if all tests come back normal, chances are, the symptoms may be due to hormones.

081119 Notes to the 3 sons:

Your future does not lay in front of you… it lies deep inside you.

Life is not about finding yourself… it’s about creating yourself.

When life gets crazy, do something normal… and when life gets too normal, do something (a little) crazy.

Always be nice.

Practice the art of listening.

Never forget… we will love you forever, for always, and no matter what.

080419 It’s not what you have in life that matters, but who you share your life with.

Our family, 5 years ago, in the state where Ben & Jerry’s ice cream was founded, and in the exact location where the Von Trapp family of Austria settled after fleeing from the Nazis.

080119 Rain and umbrellas are unwelcome when sightseeing. But when you are dealt with continuous downpour for most of the day, you just have to man up, grin and bear it.
