Don’t Sweat the SMALL stuff…

We have had a number of families experience tragic loss in the last several weeks. Moments like these often offer us perspective on what is or at least should be, most important. I encourage us all to not wait on tragedy to show our love and appreciation for those dearest to us. Most of the things I get frustrated with are SO insignificant at the end of the day – we can all do a better job of caring for one another in the moment. Let’s keep the small things in the “small” things category. Thank you all for helping make this a great community.
