I have a friend who died last week at the young age of 40 years old.
We first met when I was in 3rd grade. For many years we were not in touch, but in the last couple of years Facebook reconnected us and a friendship was born again.
When someone passes away it is only natural to remember the past. I kept on thinking how when I was in 3rd grade, and my friend was in 4th grade, our whole lives were in front of us. You don’t think that you will be dying so young and having to say goodbye to all your friends and family.
My friend’s death has made me reflect on my life right now. We work so hard, we try to be frugal and we are saving for the future, but I was reminded once again how we also have to enjoy life today. We need to seize the moment and grab opportunities.
Thank you Kirk for being a friend. Thank you for making me realize that our family needs a vacation. Have a safe trip to heaven! I hope to see you there many, many years from now.
For our annual vacation 2012 we have decided to go to Italy! Now I am going mad and obsessing about finding some cheap fares. If you have any tips please pass them on!
Thank you for letting me share and have a great day!
