How is your life going??

I know that I am taking mine for granted. That's right. We get up every morning thinking, I'm so busy, I've got this and that to do, this can wait, etc. Well, unfortunately, I attended two funerals within two days last week and it was a wake-up call. One was for my 39 year old neighbor. She left behind a husband and 12 year old son (she had been ill) and one was for Gary's 92 year old great uncle (who had been active until the very end). They were both equally hard because death, my friends, is for everyone, no matter the age, and what family members you leave behind, it is FINAL !! So having these experiences soooo close together really, really gets you thinking about "how's my life going?" I have a beautiful family, home and all my needs met. But, I need to do more and can do more. So this past week, every day, I have done something new and different. It wasn't anything like climbing Mt. Everest, but small things that made a difference for that day and that I enjoyed and haven't done before. Because, it can all be gone tomorrow. I found a great website - - that gives you something new to try everyday. Give it a try, what do you have to lose or better yet, you might gain something. Enjoy your days. I hope your life is going well ! Try something new today !

Thanks God for sending me such a great guy. Here's to the rest of our happy (and busy) life !! (Do we look young or what??)
