My dear, sweet Gretel! A year ago we were blessed by your arrival. The spring of 2012 was bitter sweet. I lost a soul and gained a soul. Your birth was a reminder of just how precious life is! However, not so precious that we cling to this world as if thrills, vacations, careers, beautiful houses, friends and stylish clothes are the ultimate end. Instead, precious in the sense that we seize each moment to live for eternity. In reality, we spend such little time on this earth...but eternity is forever!
