Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Years ago, I received this email from a good friend. I remember when her son was born, and I was at his funeral. Her email touched me deeply, and I saved it as a reminder on my refrigerator door. Now I want to share it with you:
"It was 5 years ago today that my first-born son made his entrance into this world. He was a beautiful baby with a deep soul who only lived for 5 days but gave me an enormous gift. I would like to share that gift with you on the anniversary of his birth. Please do not let the grinding details of life weigh you down. Each day will pass by too fast so it is incredibly important to always reach out to those who mean the most and tell them how wonderful they are to you. Love to all"
