I just posted on Facebook that I wish I could do this day over to make changes to friends who are just having a difficult time.  As soon as I got to work this morning, I found out a friend I used to car-pool with, lost her son last night.  His room-mate found him and could not wake him.  He had passed away in his sleep.  He was only 29.  There is no possible way I can even begin to imagine how she feels.  I keep replaying this news in my mind...wondering how Diana's life will be forever changed.  I woke up feeling pretty good today.  I can't complain.  Normally when I'm feeling blue, something like this happens.  It makes me of news makes me more appreciative.  The sad thing is, it takes something like this to make me feel better about my situation maybe that's normal. But, it makes me feel selfish.  In my opinion, one of the hardest things to do in life, is to NOT take life for granted, people for granted, or situations for granted. Why can't life be easier?  Why can't life have a pause button? Why can't I ask why and get answers?  Life is a gift.  It truly is.  Just take a minute to love and appreciate everything you can.
