Do the things that matter..

Death can be a very complicated way to complete one's earthly journey.

Few ever expect it unless of course you have been battling some terminal desease,

but even than you never truly know when you'll take your last breath.

Having just spent the last few days consoling my best friend and his wife, as they buried their son.

I can tell you that there was much more to his story.

Many more memories to be made and a lot more life to be lived.

The departed's wife and three beautiful daughters fully expected their father to come home from the hospital.

He had gone in with a kidney infection.

Who knew he would never be coming home.

I wonder what his thoughts or plans were? 

I know he was looking forward to spending time with his three girls.

An avid soccer player, he had told me he wanted to get more involved with their soccer training. 

I wonder if he had made peace with his God?

Did he tell his loved ones how much he loved them just before he passed away?

Did he know he would never leave the hospital?  

If he had would he have lived differently up until the day he had to be hospitalized?

We all live our lives thinking we will have time to do everything we need to do.

Yet, if we knew that tomorrow was our last day what would we change?

Don't wait for a tragic moment to upend your routine.

Live your life like it was your last day.

Spend time doing the things that matter..

and not just to you..

one more time.

Live - Love - Grow.

Make it a great dia!
