We can complain about how hard our lives can become.

Life comes at us hard sometimes, how do we handle the difficult times? We can dream our lives away with the what if’s. I had to learn through very painful life lessons to satisfied where I am. Let me explain. I lost my son in 2007 when he died in a tragic car accident. Both our lives were forever changed in the blink of an eye. I could have become bitter and angry,but instead chose to trust God. Every morning I get up,make coffee get ready to start my day, I am reminded at how much beauty surrounds me. I live in a beautiful place in Idaho, I am surrounded by the love and support of my family and friends. I do have so much to be thankful for.

Rebuilding my life again has taken time. I am healing more everyday and I am thankful for the many memories I have of my late husband and son. As the holiday season approaches,take time to love the one overbearing relative, hug the kids extra tight and tell them how much they are loved. I remember a time not so long ago when my house was alive with good food, great friends and lively conversations. I spend time with good friends and my aging mom now. I say often make lasting memories because you are not guaranteed tomorrow with your loved ones.

    I’m sorry for the loss of your son. I lost my son under much different circumstances in July. It’s so hard, but you’re right, we’re never guaranteed tomorrow. Life can change in an instant.
