Life

This is more of a personal post, but I feel that many of us go through these same emotions.  These emotions are what make me me.  I sit here and type this with a heavy heart.  There have been so many tragic things happening in the world, and in my own personal life.  I have always believed that God has a bigger, greater picture in mind---that things I may not understand for years to come.  I believe that he's on my side, and will lead me through whatever comes my way.  I pray that he gives me the strength and patience because I hear everything comes in threes.

I lost a co-worker, friend, "adoptive" mom.  She was such a cheerful person--always smiling, always happy go lucky. Our staff is just in shock. It's going to be different, that's for sure. 

It just goes to show me how short life truly is--never let a day go by without telling someone you love them.  Make the most of your time by spending it with family and friends.  Hug your loved ones tight--every night.  Slow down this busy world we live in, and just enjoy. 

Thanks for listening to my little speech, and allowing me to express my feelings on here.  It's definitely nice to know I have so many "friends" in bloggy world.
