This holiday weekend with the kids and my family has been fun. Full of watching them camp, eat s’mores and play with cousins. It however often leads to moments of sadness and loss- when you remember someone is missing. not only is he missing but he chose to leave this life and opted for something else. I keep telling my kids we all have choices in life and that we each deserve to be happy. Life is what we make it- hard times can teach teach us to look for true joy or can lead us to wallow in shame, sadness or regret. It’s our choice!
