Re: Carol Feineman’s column on Feb. 21, page 4, “Don’t take life, loved ones for granted.”
I remember meeting my friend, Carol Feineman’s, parents a couple of years ago, when we were invited to join them for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I remember feeling welcomed and the warmth and love of life and family.
Carol’s dad had such positive energy. Carol’s mom was so nice and I knew she was happy to have Carol and her friends there to join in on a wonderful day of celebration.
That feeling stayed with me for a long time.
Yes, life is fragile and full of challenges.
My niece was recently in a horrific car accident. She survived with only minor cuts and bruises but it could have been much worse. I am so grateful that she is in our life and is doing fine.
My husband, John, and I have faced numerous life changes as many older people do. We often remind each other that life and family are important and should not be taken for granted.
We are fortunate that our son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren live close enough to see them as often as we can and we cherish each moment with them.
My husband and I try to celebrate life each day and are told by some of our “younger friends” that, when they grow up, they want to be just like us.
We love our life, our family and friends. We love doing the things that are important, fun and keep busy.
We do remind each other that you cannot take family, friends and life for granted. I truly believe how important it is to pause and enjoy the roses.
