Steve, Don’t Leave

“Later Fred.”

Later Steve.”

The two exchanged words

As they walked out the door

If only Fred had known

Steve’s later would never come

In the blink of an eye he was gone

At the age of 45 he died


We never know how long we have

We only have so many moments

So treasure the times together

And be a friend every day.


I found out a friend of mine just lost her best friend to cancer.  It for some reason reminded me of someone I met just a couple of times but was saddened to hear he died suddenly at the age of 45.  He had so much life in front of him and it was gone in the blink of an eye.  I can’t really say we were friends, but I certainly admired him and still miss his presence in this world.  My point tonight is treat each moment special as you never know when it may be your last.  (((HUGS)))

Happy and Grateful – Day 90

As March comes to an end I continue with my goal to find happiness and gratitude every day.  There is at least some small thing that can bring a smile and give you a moment to be grateful for.  Please join me in looking for the good moments of the day … it would be great if you would share them in the comments or on your own blog.  Be aware of the little wonders of the day!

Today was a good day… I got the chance to see a friend of mine for a lunch date.  Originally there was going to be three of us but our other friend got sick and had to cancel.  But the two of us had a nice little lunch at Village Inn and talked for a couple of hours.  It is always good to connect with friends… it makes me happy!

As for the grateful part of the day… I have to turn to you, my followers.  I hit the 200 mark today and am humbled that you want to keep up with what I do.  I will try to do my best to make your time worth while.  THANK YOU to each and every one of you!  (((HUGS)))
