Hi Everyone,
With the new year comes the time for renewal of our soul. Are we living our life's purpose? For me, self change is one of the only things "I" have control of and that has been part of my "awakening" as I mature. Most often times it's the challenges that remind us of the simple beauty all around us. The challenges keep us focused, grounded and hopefully grateful. Wayne Dyer once said, "Music is the silence between the notes". If we change our perspective, we can change our lives. And then, we can change the world. Let's do it!!!! My grandmother, Louise, is at the "jumping off" place --- we didn't think she would make it until Christmas. She said she wanted roller skates for Christmas, and I thought, how perfect,--- Santa would bring her some skates to skate up to Heaven. She's still here with us, and it's nice to kiss her soft face. I Wanted to share this slide show of us. Love, Pearl

Yes, let's change the world! What a beautiful/true post. The slides of you and your grandma are beautiful... especially love the one with the little dog and your grandma, Louise laughing. In looking at these, I can feel my grandma's soft kisses against my skin. Thank you for bringing that sweet memory back for me, Robin.

Your grandmother is precious; I love the photo of her laughing, too! Hold her tightly while you can, but allow her to go when it's time. The love between the two of you shows through on the photos, you are truly blessed to have each other. Have a blessed new year!

How sweet! I can't believe it's been almost a year since you and I talked about my sweet grandfather. I will be thinking of you! Less than 2 months and I'll be seeing you at Marburger.
