I had a different post planned for today, but with the tragedy that happened over the weekend I decided this one needed be written instead. I cannot stop thinking about the death of a child and husband. How does a family go on? How does a family find peace?
As a wife and mother my heart goes out to all those who died in the accident and the loved ones they left behind. I cannot fathom what those families are going through right now. One moment your loved ones are getting on a helicopter, the next moment they are no longer with you. This is a reminder to hug those you love a little bit tighter, never leave angry and always be grateful when you or someone you love arrives home safe and sound.
Never take the time we have with those we love for granted. As I sit here I realize that I spend way too much time thinking about my to do list and not enough time simply enjoying all that has been done, simply enjoying life as is at that moment. Remember, to take the time and enjoy each stage of life. See the good throughout the journey.
Life is a gift and we need to live each day to the fullest, we truly don’t know when our time on Earth will come to an end. Take that trip, enjoy the piece of cake, choose happiness.
It’s moments like these that make me rethink what I thought was important. These are the times I truly focus on what is worth my time and what is not.
