Life is Precious

I can say I do the part about waking up to a heartfelt “thank you”– not sure I make the best use of each day, not sure I would know even if I did.
I need to express this sentiment today because we are laying to rest my cousin’s 28 year old son. Our heartbreak is immense, as the love for him is far reaching. It’s never easy to lose someone you love, but there is extra pain and poignancy when the life is just starting out.
Life is so precious, so fragile, and so fleeting. You know this. You are trying to live in a consciously aware state to be full and present for those you love. I have been stopped in my tracks with a harsh reminder, and I want to take this moment to remind you as well.
