Things we take for granted...

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop to look around once in a while you could miss it. ~From the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Life is fast....and full of things we take for granted....everyday moments and little things that fill our lives with joy! And just like Ferris Bueller...and Jesse... told me this week, if I don't stop to look around once in a while, I'm going to miss them all! It's sad that it often takes death to remind us of how short life is...and teaches us painfully about what really matters. So from now'll find me ....enjoying a wordless sunset.....carrying my well worn bucket list in my pocket and crossing more off it....loving deeper......laughing more......complaining less....spending time with my family....letting people know how much they mean to me......taking a few less photos and jumping in the picture more......and looking around at this crazy, beautiful world I call life. Seems like the older I regrets are more for what I didn't do than for what I have it's time to get to doing! And to Jesse...thanks...from the depths of this painful week, you've taught us all a lesson.

It is so hard to loose a friend. Seems as if our lives have been a paralell so far these last few weeks. Wasted time should have been spent in open places. Peace
