As I sit here today, I am reminded of how precious life truly is for each of us. A recent tragedy in the family resulted in the all-too-soon death of a child from an automobile accident and the horrors of the earthquake in Haiti have made me realize that I am so blessed.
I have been reminded of how short life can be and that we must appreciate each and every day. I must thank God for what I have and not worry so much about what I want.
While I sometimes struggle with my positive status, I am still very blessed to be alive. In my time here on Earth, I have been given the opportunity to be a daughter, a sister, a wife, and most importantly, a mother. When I reflect on these great roles, I am so grateful for the oppourtunities I have had!
