In the blink of an eye our lives can take a drastic turn.
I learned this valuable lesson at the ripe age of twenty. Unfortunately, this came from losing someone very dear to me. Hard lesson to learn so young, and although I was forever changed, thank God I persevered!
We learn our best lessons from the most difficult times in our lives.
And so, it goes . . .
We can’t have sunshine without rain.
Laughter without tears.
For to stand on the mountaintop, we must first walk in the valley.
It’s just the way it is!
I was reminded this past week how VERY FRAGILE life is. A harsh reminder, but I guess it was THAT time again. . . “reminder time”. Now and then we need a little jolt, not only to set us back on track, but to set those around us as well.
And so, as I move forward with this realization, I proceed with renewed clarity.
I love a little deeper,
Laugh a bit louder,
Hug people tighter, and
Live this one life like there is no tomorrow.
For in the blink of an eye it can all change.
