This rocked my world and became a game changer.

Do you have a big family? Compared to my grandmother, who was one of ten children, I have a small family. I was one of three. I'm the middle child and the only daughter. I tell my brothers that our family is like an Oreo cookie, the best part is in the center. My husband and I have two children. They are our joy.

I remember looking at him one day and thinking, I only have days left with him before he's gone. [...]

Have you ever flown the red eye before? The red eye is a flight that departs late at night and arrives early the next morning. About eight years ago, our family was flying home from vacation and had to take the red eye.  Since I have a great deal of trouble sleeping on a plane and it was quiet because most of the people were asleep, I took the opportunity to have a quiet time.
