Sobering Times

Maybe this not the place for this; but it hit home today. My wife and I are shopping for a travel trailer, and went to look at one from an individual yesterday afternoon. We had the normal good visit and conversation with the lady owner and her son. We told her that we would talk about the trailer and get back with her today. Well, about 3 hours after we talked with her yesterday, her 18 year old son was killed in a car accident. My apologies for this burden, but this forum seems to be the caring kind of people who would understand. Keep them in your prayers and thoughts please.

One of our good friends just lost their 14 year old daughter from being hit walking to her school bus stop. It can happen to any of us anytime.

THis just amply illustrates that life is fleeting and transient..

Leave no love unreturned
Carry no grudge
dont put off till tomorrow what you can love today
Use the good china
drink that special bottle
use the special perfume
say what needs to be said TODAY

Yesterday is HISTORY
Tomorrow is a MYSTERY

Take your PRESENT and open it!

Condolences to all who suffer a loss..
