This is what it's all about.

This morning I am so full of all these different emotions.

I'm crying.  I'm excited.  I'm anxious.  I'm sad.  I'm so flipping happy I cannot stand it!!!!!!

My best friend MJ just had her first baby!!!!!  I'm so happy for her!!!!!!  Crying tears of joy!  Yet, I'm sad that I am not able to be there since she is around the DC area. 


Then there's my other best friend Monica who is in Charlotte recovering from brain surgery yesterday.  She has hydrocephalus and had to have a anti siphoning device put in because she has been bed ridden since May because her shunt has been working TOO well.  I'm anxious for my friend because I know she is in pain.  I'm sad that I am unable to be there for her. 

Then my new friend S-L is upset because of some things going on in her life.  I can offer advice and give encouragement because that is what friends do for each other.

After calming down from waking the whole house to tell about MJ having her baby, I was in the kitchen fixing my coffee.  Crying.  Then this thought came to mind,

"This is what LIFE is all about."

We share in joys, we cry with our friends and we worry about everything in between.   We form friendships that only last a short time and we make friends that last a lifetime. 

We need to only live in the now. Think about only today.  Live it to the fullest.  Make it count.  Because this is our life, and we may not have tomorrow.

My advice:

Love with your whole heart.  Live a life full of passion.  Laugh at the little things.  Cry because you are happy, it feels good.  Stop worrying about tomorrow, because it may never come. 

My thoughts instantly go to H and Evan.  (The guy who died in the car accident.)  They were so happy.  New love blooming.  Excited about what tomorrow was going to bring.  Then the tragic accident happened.  That love never given a chance.  It was over in an instant. 

It just shows that I am on the right track.  Live today!!!!!
