She learned not to sweat the small stuff but rather to focus on the big picture. Her mantra was “There are two ways to live your life, one as though nothing is a miracle, the other as though everything is. Choose miracles.” The family would like to thank Doug, Chief Michael and the rest of the firefighters, the cardiac care nurse, EMS attendants and passersby who stopped to help, and the nurses, chaplain and doctors at the ER.
