A little bit personal

Life changes so quickly.  In the blink of an eye, things can go from bad to good, from good to bad, from easy to hard.  It only takes one moment to realize how good we have it, how easy something is, or how wrong we have been.  In life's little moments when we can look back, at the past, we reflect.  We hopefully will realize that life is short and that we need to take advantage of all the time we have with our loved ones and how we cannot take one thing for granted.  Life is so precious and we only get one chance to make it a good one. 

We lost someone dear to us yesterday.  He was a strong man who was there first and foremost for his family.  He was brave, a fighter in every way.  He hid his struggles and put on a brave face up until the very end.  We thought we'd have longer with him, but his body gave in last night.  In the very end, his family had no regrets.  Everything that had to be said was said, and every last "I love you" was spoken.  They were so lucky to be given the time they had with him.  He was a wonderful man and his family knows how lucky they are to have had him in their lives.

My dear readers, Say I love you to the people you care about it.  Say it often, and say it with meaning.  Spend quality time as much as you can with the people that mean something to you.  Make sure you tell your loved ones that you care about them and that you appreciate them.  We never know when our last breath will be taken and no one deserves to have regrets when someone is taken from us.  Take this post as a little reminder that we are given this life but it can be taken away at any moment.  We are blessed to have loved ones in our lives, and we need to make sure that nothing is taken for granted, not a person's love, not a moment lived, not a breath taken.
