“My parents blessed me with directives to think, to be aware of my choices and their repercussions. They were always trying to teach me how to think, rather than what to think.”
― Cathy Burnham Martin, from 2019’s “Encouragement: How to Be and Find the Best”
They enjoyed over 70 years together. This day marks their wedding day in 1950. My mother is still with us. In fact, tomorrow, we celebrate her 92nd birthday. I have been amazingly blessed. May we all aspire to be a bit more like those we admire most.
