Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted.

So earlier I read a blogger that I have followed for a while. I have not read her blog in a few weeks and was shocked when I pulled it up.
She lost her husband. He died after an incident put him into ICU. I will not go into the details here, but it is a truly heart breaking story. He left her behind with two kids.

It got me thinking about how easy it is to take what you have for granted, and I am ashamed to admit that I have a lot. After reading this I gave my family a big hug and sat back to reflect on it. If I died tomorrow I do not want to think that I took one second of my family or friends for granted. I have always tried not to do so, but it is so easy to do.

This is going to be a very short post. I just wanted to say that my thoughts and love are with her, and to ask each and everyone of you to step back and appreciate what you have more than usual.

I have love for each and every one of you in some way or another.
