Life is a precious gift. This is something that day-to-day living can cloud or even make us forget. My day started out quite hectic, I was feeling a little shaken up and just plain frustrated. Then as the day went on and I processed my feelings I began to think about my friend who teaches down the hall from me. Her one year old is going to have surgery next week to remove a mass from her torso. Just last year she was celebrating the birth of this precious perfect baby girl and now she is facing hearing one of the worst words a mother can hear. I don't even know how you begin to process something like that. Then there is the family of a fourteen year old girl who was stabbed to death a little over two years ago when she returned home from school and unknowingly walked into a robbery in progress. The trial began this week to prosecute the man alleged to be the murderer. How does one justify such a loss in their life? It is events like this that remind me that each day is truly special and just how what a precious gift life is. Please make sure to take time today to be thankful for the things that are happening in your life. You just never know when those things can suddenly be taken from you.

A bit about me:
I am who I am thanks to God, my parents, my family, and my friends. My life is driven by faith. Oh, and I am a cancer survivor.
