Life is Precious

Dear reader, I know you know this, but lately I really know this.

Last week was a tough one. Friend was on the phone with her Mom who lived out of town. Mom had a heart attack while they were on the phone; call to sister who lives near Mom, three stents, rehab and a few mini strokes but Mom is on the road to recovery. Colleague lost her Godfather last week. Two other friends are trying to help their elderly relatives through some serious medical issues. And my sister had some life threatening medical issues.

Life is short. Life is a precious thing. We need to tell those we love, we love them. We can’t take any month, week, day or hour for granted.

But for the grace of God go I and another quote to remind us of our good life and how precious life is.
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
Mother Teresa

Many prayers and good thoughts to all struggling for life. Keep up the good fight. We will miss you when you are gone.
