During market week last week, we had the pleasure of a visit from Kim of KC’s Fashions. We got on the subject of life, death and everything in-between. She said when people visit a cemetery, they tend to look at the date the person was born and then the date they died but they forget the hyphen in between. The hyphen is a whole life lived.
We tend to focus on the edges and forget the in-between. Do you remember to live in the hyphen?
Thank you Kim for the reminder!

I could have changed my flight and arrived a day early.She didn't expect me there and there were no hard feelings between us, but looking at the photos, seeing friends and family I heard about during the years and never met, seeing her so happy, I made a mental note to myself and a vow that i will try to make it...
