I was reminded today that life is precious.
Today i went to the funeral of a healthy,strong 32 year old man, he’d only been married 2 years, and his wife was so brave. It got me thinking….
I thought back to all the times i had a go at my boy about daft stuff like never cleaning out the sink after he has a shave (which drives me nuts) and every time he forgot to do the dishes when i asked him to, And as i watched her walking round the room holding it together beautifully i thought “i bet she would give anything to shout at her husband about not cleaning out the sink or not doing the dishes”
So just go give your other half a hug and remember to be thankful that you have found someone to spend your life with and cherish every moment, even the crappy ones.

nearly-mrs-R: Thank you for posting this. It’s a good reminder to appreciate our loved ones for their positive points and not focus as much on the little things that don’t really matter.

Beautifully written. I’m going to give my FI the biggest hug once he’s back from soccer tonight!

- Wedding: September 2014 - Jacksonville Inn
I work in an intensive care unit, so I try to remember how precious life is everyday. The day I witnessed a 21 year old bride pull life support from her brain dead 22 year old husband was probably the hardest death I’ve seen in 14 years working.

That would be so hard, but is a good reminder of the important things. I’m still a waiting bee, so sometimes I get stuck worrying about when we can take the next step, and sometimes I forget to live in the now and appreciate the time we are given. I can’t imagine going through what those families are going through.

Couldn’t agree more. My brother passed away suddenly at age 21 and I live with those thoughts every day. Thank you for posting.

I love that you posted this. We all take life for granted until it’s taken away from us in some way. My best friend just lost her fiancé in a drunk driving accident. they had gotten in a fight and he got in the car with a drunk friend. My friend is never one to hold grudges so she texted him when he left to tell him she loved him. He was killed 3 minutes after the text was received.
It’s stories like those that help remind me to be thankful for the friends and family I have.
Today I will hug everyone just a little tighter.

Thank you for posting this! I know I’ve been stressed from work lately, so I’ve been on the snappier side. I’m giving my fiance an extra hug and kisses today just for putting up with me!
