This morning I was watching the news and there was a segment on a 16yo boy who was dying from cancer. And he only has a short time left. He has a blog online and in it his comments are very inspiring, positive and very courageous. As I started my day, it made me think how lucky I am that I am healthy and that my wife and kids are healthy. We often tend to take things for granted and allow the smallest, most insignificant things bother us. When I was listening to this persons story today, I felt ashamed and embarrased for my past actions that were the result of things that don't even come close to what this person is going thru. So hopefully today the story I heard will sink deep within my soul and remind me, when I most need to be reminded, that life is short and that we must focus on being happen in this moment. Let's not wait for next week, or the next medication or the next kind words. Let's try our best to be happy in this moment. And if you can't, think about the many people who are suffering 100 times more than what you are I am suffering, and maybe we can change how we feel in this moment.
