Hope for Better Days

Good Morning. I have to be honest but I always feel trivial posting something on my blog after a tragedy. 


The incident in Boston yesterday was so heart wrenching. To see all of those cheering faces and then in an instant lives forever changed. So today, just a few thoughts...




 Life is fragile. 


 Life is precious.


Never put off saying, "I love you." 


 It is loving and giving that make life worth living.



Yesterday will never come again, but you have today.



I hope you have a good day.

    1. Deborah, it is so true...life is so very precious, and fragile. And with the day to day grind we forget what is most important. Thank you for your kind words. I wish you a beautiful day and hope for some sun and spring weather for you.

  4. Horrible....and so scary and a vivid reminder of how vulnerable as a country we still are. I too send my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by this horrible tragedy.

    1. Tina, it is so true, we are incredibly vulnerable. My thoughts are with those poor families who are lost or wounded. And there are so many.

  5. This is right my friend. We have today to LOVE and live to our best ability. God knows that is all that matters and that is all the riches we possess. Oh how sick I am over this, to see my "hometown" where Ruben and I both "grew up" as adults come to this....much love. Anita

  6. Elizabeth, we may be on the other side of the world but we are all affected by the events at the Boston Marathon - so random, so horrible. Thinking of all my friends in the US today.
