So much to be thankful for

It seems that everywhere I turn I am hearing sad news about families and children.  Cancer. Brain Tumors. Car accidents.  Shootings.  Drownings.  It is all so sad and overwhelming and humbling.  Eye opening.  There is so much to be thankful for.  So much life to enjoy- while you can.  Life can take terrifying turns in the blink of an eye and leave your world spinning.  I've said so many prayers in the past few weeks for so many people who are hurting, many I don't even know.  I just can't imagine.  I'm sure at some point they've said the same... "I just can't imagine."

It really makes me realize how short this life is and how precious it can be.  That every single day is a miracle and a gift, that we should enjoy it and savor it- every last minute of it.  We aren't promised tomorrow.  There is no guarantee.

Today, I'm thankful for this amazing life I'm living.  That I've had one more day to live it with the people I love dearly.
