Today was one of those days that provided me with unexpected reminders of just how precious and fleeting life truly is and how often we take it for granted. As two separate tragedies unfolded, although not impacted directly by either one, I started thinking about life. My life. The lives of my loved ones. Life in general. As I reflected on life, I kept coming back to one overriding thought.
Every day that we are alive is a gift that should treasured and that should be used to its greatest and fullest potential.
While not necessarily a profound or original thought, it put everything in its proper perspective and made me feel so deeply grateful for my life and the lives of everyone around me. At the end of the day, no matter what kind of day it was, the very gift of life we have been given is what matters most.
Just one thing each day. . .
