Life is Precious

IMG_0462

Words can not describe what happened yesterday. Tragic events like this really make me realize how precious life is. I still can’t believe that something like this happened. My prayers and thoughts are with everyone that was affected. After watching the news all day yesterday, I thought about my life and realized that sometimes it is very easy to take basic things for granted. I am grateful that I woke up today and have people in my life that love me and that I love them. One thing that helped me last night, was telling the people that mean the most to me how much I love them and that I am grateful that they are in my life. Try to focus on the important things today that matter. It is very easy to get caught up with things that seem so hard and difficult at the time. I have realized that those things for me, don’t even come close to as important as losing a loved one. Cherish the people around you today. I hope we can grow stronger from this experience and learn just how important life really is. I am heartbroken and incredibly sorry for everyone that is affected by this disgusting, horrendous event. I wish everyone reading this that you have a good day and that you are given the opportunity to be with your loved ones today. Love is the essence of life and don’t take that for granted.

  1. Seize the moment. Cherish everyone around you . . . I love your post today, and hopefully the outpouring of love and acceptance of those different from us–especially those with mental diseases–will grow. My heart is broken, too, and I have never had my own child. I just see my sister and her husband, their 6 and 8 year olds and cannot imagine the devastated lives they would lead were this to happen to them. I just cannot imagine. ;-(
