  1. Wow - that's truly powerful. Maybe too powerful for 8:30 Wednesday morning! It really does make you think about the things you take for granted or the times you complain about life - how different could it be - one tragedy can change everything. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I loved this and it made me cry. I sometimes get so many at people who constantly complain about their siblings. They have no idea how lucky they are to still have their brother or sister around to fight with. I think that we take so much for granted daily and I love when people realize this and live each day as thought it is their last. This is a great repost.
