Just a day or so ago and we’re mourning the loss of Carrie Fisher.  And today we mourn for her mother. 

This is such a tragedy.  Folks I’m going to take this as a sign to love harder. To try more to give more and to say I LOVE YOU more.  I’m honestly just speechless. 

We know that their relationship was tumultuous and that they stayed apart for 10 years. Some of you out there would have no idea how this feels.  But Debbie said that she’ll just love her daughter through those hard times.  That’s what a mother does. Even though her daughter abandoned the relationship her love never faltered. 

Take the time to love your family and friends.  Take the time to be there and show compassion. Take the time to be Friend to someone in need. Stay safe this New Year. Be grateful for life and love.
