A Reminder to Live in the Moment

This morning I received a very sad news of a mother of two beautiful girls passing away last night.  She couldn't have prevented the aneurysm and sadly there is a family heart broken today.  This kinds of events are unfortunately little reminders that life is way too short and more so when we live it always rushing, always with a what-now mentality and more often than not forgetting about living in the moment and appreciating the things we have in life.  I love the quote I posted on Sunday because it contains everything there is to be happy.  Enjoy the moment, the family and don't try to change what's unchangeable because life is too short.

We should take a moment each day and be thankful for what we have and we should try to appreciate the little joys more and not over-think the fact that we haven't achieved something big today.

So very sad for the grieving family.It is true, Julie, that a mother's love is very precious and once she is gone, life is changed forever.

Love the quote, too! Powerful.

Hope your day is good. Susan
