No regrets

I woke up yesterday to the news that there had been a terrible accident in the community.  Three local girls, seniors in the high school were riding together in a car that collided with a truck.  Two of the girls were injured and one killed.  A beautiful 18-year-old girl who should be preparing for her prom and graduation.  Instead, her parents prepare for a funeral.  I did not know this young girl nor do I know her family yet my heart still breaks.

Just another reminder of how fragile life is.  In the blink of an eye it can all be taken away. I can not even imagine the pain those parents feel.  I made sure to hug my girls a little harder last night and to be honest drove just a little slower today. It also helps to reinforce my decision to do everything I can to avoid breast cancer! There are some who think prophylactic mastectomy is just crazy.  I feel that view is…guess it is all in how you look at it.

It is not always cancer or sickness, you could  just be in a car driving home or standing on a corner.  Life is short and unpredictable.  Make sure to hug your kids today, tell your family you love them!
