Live for Today

I have recently lost a great friend. So I wanted to share a personal story with you in the hopes that you can remember to live in the moment, and life your life to the fullest.

A couple of weeks Terry was on his way home from work in his co-workers car, when it broke down he got out to take a look at the situation. He realized they were in an unsafe location to park, and called 911 for assistance. On his way back into the vehicle he was struck by another vehicle that had killed him instantly.

This is tragic an unfortunate. I understand that everything happens for a reason, but it really got me questioning why God took his life. I struggled to be strong for his kids and his girlfriend as well as my husband who was very close to him. He was our friend, neighbor and that guy that you just loved to have around cause he was always making jokes! I dont know if the word 'miss' him is enough, but its all I keep saying..."I am really going to miss Terry". Just riding our bikes out a nice day was sharing some of the best moments ever. Looking over at him, with his smile and true content.

This loss of life has taught me that sometimes we go through life and just go through the moments. STOP and realize to enjoy the present. Do not think about yesterday (its done), do not think about tomorrow (you just never know), think about the present (its a gift). So this is where I am at. I am thinking about now, and thinking that I am grateful for so many aspects of my life, and I am happy to have created so many wonderful memories this far. I am optimistic about the future and I am cherishing today.

I wish you are able to try and take away that part of my message. Live for today!

Have a wonderful day!

Rest in Peace Terry!
