Happy Weekend Everyone!!
I have spent nearly an entire week just trying to put words to paper, on what exactly I would post for this final post of the year.
Should I write about all the wonderful things that happened over a course of a year?
Should I write about what I inspire to do in the coming year?
Should these lists be illustrated or purely words?
So many ideas swimming around inside this tiny little head..
But then life happened...
The kind that takes your breath away..
It makes you numb and unable to move a single muscle in your entire body.
In less than 24 hours, we have found out that we have lost a beloved family member, one who was full of spirit and too young to leave us.
But I am not writing this to seek sympathy or condolences...
I am writing this because sometimes those moments, as horrible as they may be, can give us the ability of sight.
A sight where the past doesn't seem so important.
That lists are just lists.
What is important though...
is to live each day to the fullest..
To be grateful for the things that surround you no matter how big or small.
To try and grab the brass ring even if you fail 100 times.
and most importantly...
So even though I said I wasn't writing a list, for 2012 I will be trying to follow along with these simple yet powerful actions..
Grab the Brass Ring
As my heart is with a family in mourning,
I am strangely comforted in the thought that this wonderful spirited boy is now in the company of his father, that they are diving in the deep blue seas, swimming with the sharks and planning their next great adventure.
Be Safe, Tell Someone you Love Them, and Have a Great Weekend!!
