Every once in a while you get a little reminder of how fragile life is. How fleeting it can be.
An acquaintance of mine lost her husband the other day. A co-worker told me this morning that her husband has leukemia. A friend is having a lumpectomy today to find out how bad her breast cancer is.
You know, when my biggest problem is what I'm going to make for dinner, I think I need to be a little more grateful for my blessings and a want a little less. I need to be a little more patient with my family and a lot more kind to strangers. I need to be less critical of others' shortcomings and more aware of my own and how to overcome them. I need to be less selfish with my time and more giving of myself. I need to laugh more and give my "be serious" look less.
I need to embrace every day of my life. No matter what it brings.
Hugs and prayers going out to all who are going through a difficult life experience today.
