9 Years Ago Today...
Exactly 9 years ago today, I married my best friend and the love of my life, Jeff. Over the past few weeks, I've been reflecting back to that time of my life; back when life was at an all-time high, back before I had lost any of my grandparents, back before my mom was sick. Life was simple. Life was happy. Life was good.
It brings tears to my eyes to see pictures of my mom at that time and remember what a great friend and mother she was. She truly was one of my best friends. I could talk to her about anything. I am grateful that I have had her as my mother. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her for the way she once was.
Life is precious. In an instant, everything can change. You never know when your time will end (or the time of someone you love). Take advantage of every day. Don't put off for tomorrow what you could do today. Make those memories now. Don't let the day pass without telling those you love how you feel about them. Forgive; life is too short to hold a grudge. Live without regrets.
