This week has been a hard week. A good friend died, another acquaintance had a stroke and a distant relative passed away. Yet, through all of this, it's been good. A good reminder of what's forever, what's temporary. It's a reminder that what we have, we shouldn't take for granted. It sounds like such a cliche statement, yet it hit home hard for me this week. I want to love a little more, watch what I say, hug a little longer. Losing people around you does that to you. I want to make it count.
