Each moment is precious…
Of course we all know this, but we often forget — until something happens that snaps us back to this reality.
For me, that something happened recently while traveling.
I got a text from a dear friend from St. Croix. It wasn’t good news. Her son-in-law, a bright young man I had the pleasure of meeting during my last trip home to the Virgin Islands is no longer with us.
A car accident ended his life..
I’ve been thinking about him every day since then.
I liked his energy and admired his vision for the future. He had plans to build a home and raise a family.
One moment he was here and the next moment he was gone. Less than 45 days after we met.
Life is unpredictable. You know this and I know it. Yet we often act as though we have all the time in the world to do or say what really matters to us.
Each moment counts, each moment is precious, each moment is a rare gift.
I’m sharing this message because it’s easy to lose sight of what’s important and who’s important in our lives.
Life is a mystery and who knows how much time we have on this journey to earth. But we can decide to celebrate this gift we have been given, we can decide to live life to your fullest, we can decide to love.
We can decide to live our best life…
…That’s what I plan to do. I am praying you will too!
