    REMEMBER: to have some tissues beside you when you read some of the AMAZING things that people write about in their blogs….
    Because you will be touched.
    And you will be teary-eyed.

    This is so beautiful, Tracey.

    I’m going to print this out and tape it to my monitor. Better yet, to my arm so I don’t forget it.

    Remember to say “I love you” often to your family.

    Remember that you can never give enough hugs.
