My Sunday Quote of The Week...

Thankful for the chance to keep on…

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. “
~ Marcus Aurelius

Words can’t properly begin to convey how thankful my heart is today. October 10th 2011 on his birthday, I almost lost my husband of 15 years, my friend of 21 years…the father of my children, after a freak asthma attack Let Go and Let God

I’m thankful that after days of incertitude he was given the chance not to do over but a chance to keep on. This past week, regardless of the commitment I had made for myself I put everything on hold so I could make sure we celebrated this additional year in his life. For him, we were just celebrating his birthday in style J  (as he didn’t share with me any thoughts), for me it was deeper than that… It was making sure he knew how important he was to me, to us and how lucky and blessed we were to have been given this 2nd chance to reset/restart the life that almost stopped.
There is information that only God is preview to; divine data that only he knows; like the number of days we have on this earth. We need to learn to value our days, to cherish the gift that is our lives because without this appreciation all that we possess has no meaning…no relevance.

As we dream and wish… as we work toward and achieve… and as we acquire and own… Remember the one who gave us a season of life to live and to accomplish.  
No one knows what is to come, what your next minute will be made of or bring to your life BUT we all know time as been given to us to make the best of it
