Life is precious

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I lost a friend to breast cancer yesterday after 4 years of fighting and she seldom complained.

Often we complain about our physical bodies and find fault with every thing from our hair to the shape of our feet. We complain about our jobs, our children, the house, the's almost endless.

Today I CHOOSE to be thankful for everything and everyone in my life. Yes, my friend is gone but she left me with a better attitude. Thanks Dana - Smile and Soar babes.

    Sorry or your loss. Great friends leave us with wonderful lessons and memories. I lost my cousin to obesity this lastbyear and it does remind you of the important things. God bless.

    I'm so sorry for your loss and for the years of your friend's struggle. It certainly puts a lot in perspective.

    Take care of yourself.

    I try to remind myself every day to be grateful just for being alive. It so easily could have been otherwise.

    So sorry for your loss. You're right, life is precious and we should appreciate every minute of it.

    Sorry for your loss. It is true - we tend to appreciate things when we loose them.
