As some of you know my niece passed away while I was in Hawaii. It turned the trip into an emotional one. Sunsets made me cry, the scent of plumerias and gardenias teased my senses, and swimming in the ocean soothed my soul. I'm not a religious person but I believe we are all connected and I think, or at least hope, I was able to offer an outlet of peace and relief to sweet Allie by being in such a magical place at the time of her passing. Above all it reminded me to keep living, loving, and experiencing everything to the fullest. Because this life is here to delight in.
