Life is short. 

This weekend we lost a family member to cancer. 

Though we never really saw eye to eye, I was able to make peace with her before she passed. It was a reminder that life is short. 

We may not know the struggles someone is going through, the pain they are feeling, the thoughts in their head, or what their motives are for the things they do.  

But I really do feel comfort in knowing that I saw this person grow. I saw her bring joy to others who I love very much. I believe it really was her time. I am glad she is now at peace. She deserves that.

You never know what tomorrow will bring. You never know when your time will come. Make the most of every moment you have here on earth.

Make today a good day :)
