I know holidays can be hard for all of who are members of this site. But try to enjoy the day with your loved one's and make memories that will last a lifetime. For those of us without our loved ones find comfort in the memories of days like today and everyday. God Bless you all - Happy 4th.

Thanks! And I second that! HAPPY 4th everyone! This morning I woke early and decided to take my parents into the city to see my office building. (I've been working there 5 weeks now) Didn't have a key to the office made for me yet, so thought I'd just show them the building, walk around a bit, grab some lunch etc.... Well low and behold when I parked the car, an associate of mine pulled into the space right next to mine!! He had forgotten his briefcase and needed it to work from home over the weekend! He had a KEY!

Got to show my parents my office on the 29th floor and this associate of mine told us about a "reflection" park and few blocks away. It is a cancer SURVIVORS memorial reflection tribute donated by Richard and Annette Block. It is landscaped with bronze statutes of children and adults and bronze plaques that tell about survivors and that cancer CAN be beat each and every day. It was amazing! We took lots of pictures, had lunch and even walked (Dad in wheelchair of course) to the Farmers Market for fresh fruit.

It has been a great day and that was just this MORNING! Hope all of you have a wonderful holiday weekend spent with all the ones you love!

Wow Katie,

What a great day! I've heard about the survivor's parks and am glad you got to take your dad there and to see your office, I'll bet he was impressed! I'm so glad to see you both enjoying life and being able to spend great times together.

You are right STARZ98..making memories is so important...I think it helps our loved ones fight the battle even harder when we have such great days together. Hope everyone had a great 4th. We had pouring rain in Pittsburgh..but that is why we have porches with roofs!!! My Dad ate so much..I found myself adding up the calories to myself with pride!!! He even decided he would drive home today..which he did...Happy 4th everyone and let's have a great entire JULY!!

Katie, what a great day with your dad! I just KNOW he was so proud to see where his daughter worked. God does make things happen for us.

Hope you had a good 4th of July too STARZ98.

We just stayed home as it was storming all day long. Bill slept most of the day and my daughter was at the lake with friends. So I puttered around the house and planned a nice dinner for Bill. When I woke him to eat he had two servings!!! Made my day!
