Reflections on the beauty and brevity of life ~ 9/27/14

It was another lovely fall day today with temps hitting the 70s. We took a walk in the park but all of our thoughts were on the Engelsman family who just lost their wife, mother, and grandmother suddenly from a brain aneurysm. The entire community is shocked. How quickly a life is snuffed out. She was a vibrant personality soon considering retirement.
Here's a blurry picture of us at the local theater.
So what do we take away from the sudden death of a dear friend? Life is short, precious, and unpredictable. Enjoy each morning that you wake up to experience another day. That is your best day. Embrace those whom you love and spend time with those who love you back. And then find the beauty in every day you have.
