Sunday Inspiration: Barbara Bush

Barbara BushAt the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.   Barbara Bush

Thank you, Barbara Bush, for your grace and class under pressure, for your attention to duty, your sense of humor, your delight in reading, and your public service. Rest in Peace after a life well lived.

    Two of my favorite ladies. There have been many lovely First Ladies, but something resonated with me when these two appeared on the scene, and not just during their tenure in the White House. Politics aside, I admired them then and do so to this day. My heart is sad. Emilie, many thanks for today’s post.
