As I lay in bed with my two babes, I truly am appreciative for all that I have.
A coworker of mine had one of the loves of their life taken from them too soon this weekend. I can not even begin to fathom what their family is going through. The loss of a child is like no other. I can not even pretend that I understand.
What I can do is love my babies until they can’t take it anymore. I can hug them, kiss them and tell them I love them along with everyone else in my life. I can put down the iPhone for a bedtime story, or just for cuddles. I can take that 5 minute break from homework to hear their insane requests for outlandish toys on TV or ice cream before dinner.
I can remind all of you, my readers, to tell those around them you love them. Hug them, kiss them, squeeze them tight, because somewhere someone may have just been robbed of those special moments with someone they love.
We as people need to cherish the time we have, and celebrate life before it’s too late…
