A Rough Year, So Much Loss


It seems like there has been so much loss in the past year, or maybe I am just hyper-aware because of my own loss. In May of last year, my cousin Gary was killed in a motorcycle wreck. That August, we lost my mom to cancer. Now, my family will be gather for yet another funeral as another family member has passed. My cousin (also my godfather) Eric, left us on Sunday, April 14th. He also was in a motorcycle accident. It's moments like these and the events in Boston that remind us how precious and fragile we all are. We aren't guaranteed tomorrow, so don't take advantage of what you have now.
