I was reminded once again this week how short life is, and how time passes by so fast.
The first thing that reminded me was that today is my 34th anniversary. You guys that are in your late teens and early 20’s probably think being married 34 years is FOR-EV-ER, but to me that time has swept through like a passing breeze. I think that Dean and I would both agree that our marriage has it’s ups and downs. Just like a healthy body, the hard work and commitment a healthy marriage takes is more than worth the effort. Just like when you are working toward being physically stronger there can be the temptation to quit when things get tough. I am grateful for a partner that has never quit on me.
I love you Dean Carlson.
The second thing that reminded me that life is short is that cancer is an illness that hits home very closely. My Dad and sister are still fighting this disease. Events in our lives or the lives of the ones we care about can and should refocus us on what is really important.
We make choices every day.
Choose to make the most of this one, and every one you are given.
Make It Happen!
