Too soon

I just heard that a colleague died in a car accident. He was in sales in another state and I didn't have any contact with him. I didn't know him and I hadn't even heard his name until today but word of his death made me incredibly sad. He had three young kids - two girls about the same ages as my kids and a baby boy. I don't want to think about my girls losing their father now, or ever. I can imagine what his wife is going through right now and it hurts.

I know this isn't about me. I know that I shouldn't be wallowing in someone else's misery. Lord knows that I can find plenty of misery closer to home to wallow in. I also know that what I'm about to write is so cliche that I'll probably regret writing it (but I will anyway).

Life is precious and precarious and sometimes too short. Enjoy your life. Enjoy the people you love. Don't be petty. Be nice.

Have a lovely day.

You're so right. People need to be thankful for what they have and not what someone else tells them they should have. Enjoy today because when it's gone, your tomorrow will never be the same.
