You Should…

Thank you guys all for your extremely kind words, and all the love. These past couple days have been really hard. My friend who survived had surgery on her aorta yesterday and is still in a drug induced coma. She broke almost everything (including ribs, and spine) and had severe damage to her organs. It’s pretty touch and go.

The driver of the vehicle that was struck (the vehicle in which I knew everyone) is a close friends father. I am so emotional for her and her sisters loss. Nobody should ever have to lose a parent this way.

Which is why today you should live your life like normal, just do a couple extra things along the way.

-Call your parents. Tell them you love them.

This is my Momma, and although I love her dearly, I rarely ever say it.

-Buckle your seat belts. I used to be careless, and essentially stupid. I never wore a seatbelt. I’m pretty anal about it now, and hope everyone else I know is as well.

-Make amends. Don’t go to bed angry. Don’t end a conversation angry. It’s sad that it takes a tragedy to remind us of this, but if you are arguing with anyone over something minor, deal with it so that there is no possibility it is the last thing you say to that person.

-Take a minute of your day and forget about all the negative, and focus on all the amazing things in your life. Acknowledge your family, friends, nature, city; whatever it is that makes your life complete. Appreciate the little things.

The little things like snuggles with your kitty

Or like beautiful scenery

Or the love of your life

Or your blog friends! I appreciate each and every one of you, more then you will ever know.

I have been really preoccupied with life, and since there is no internet at work I read blogs off my iPhone. I am reading all of your blogs, but am sucking big time at commenting. Please know I am still reading!

What little things do you appreciate?

I took a week long break from blogging to clear my head, gather my thoughts, and essentially just because I needed a break.

I was excited to get back to blogging this morning as I love connecting with all of you guys. However my morning started on the worst foot possible as I found out a serious car accident killed two people I know, and the third passenger, a girl I used to work with, is in the hospital with incredibly serious injuries. Injuries I can’t even wrap my head around.

Here is a link to the story if you so choose to read/watch it. I can’t. I am surprised at how badly this has shook me up.

I was talking to a friend today about how so very few people I have been close with have passed away, yet all of them occured in the month of August. Tomorrow is actually the 6 year anniversary of the death of one of my close friends. I know that things always get better, and this too shall pass, however; this is not fair.

If you are someone who prays, I beg that you keep my friend in your prayers. I promise I will be back to regular blogging soon!
