Default Each day is a gift

We all hear this over and over, but once in a while something drives home how true it really is.
Today I am attending a double funeral - Wife & daughter of my wife's cousin. Mom and 15 year-old daughter climb in the car to get from point A to point B just like any other family on any other day. They hit a patch of ice and slide into the path of an on-coming car.

That was it.

This was on a quiet country road. A few seconds earlier or later and it would have been a harmless spin of no consequence.

We need to cherish every moment. Life is so fragile and fleeting - you can't take anything for granted.

Man... I was all set to come in here, and make a joke.

But now that doesn't seem right... sorry to hear that. My thoughts will be with you today...
