We're Not Promised Tomorrow...

...though we always act like we have all the time in the world.

We should:

  • Cherish yesterday
  • Dream tomorrow 
  • but Live today
I've said this ever since my dear husband died, and then when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  But, we get complacent in our busy living and forget!  I'll do that tomorrow...

Well, this lesson has been brought home to me in a very real way this past week when I lost a dear friend quite suddenly.  She was busy living life and had all kinds of plans and expectations for the future.

She went into the hospital for heart surgery (which is so often routine in today's world), came through the surgery fine and two days later there were complications and she was gone!  Gone!  GONE!

Are your affairs in order?  Do you have a will?  Does anyone know what you want done if you're suddenly gone?  If you're online (and apparently you are if you're reading this), does someone know how to access your sites and take care of them?

If you don't have that done, I strongly encourage you to do so - whether you're young or old, sick or in good health.  It will make it so much easier on your family when you are gone - and you might not have tomorrow to do it!
