Put in Perspective
I just had my life put in perspective. My much loved nephew has been in a horrible accident. Nothing has mattered over the last 48 hours but him surviving. Since I am unable to accomplish anything while waiting to go back to the hospital I've been thinking. My bitching about my everyday life is so trivial, looking at him lying there makes me realize how lucky I am. For starters, that I'm here still enjoying life as is my family and our very small extended family. How lucky we are to have him still with us and to not be dealing with the alternative. How death is so close at all times, lurking. Enjoy the good things you have everyday, tell the people you love that you love them everyday, hug and kiss even if your kids are embarrassed by it. You might only have today.
