Last night I had such a great time watching the Oscars. It reminded me of why people love movies so much. They love them because they show another story. They bring you into another world and you become entangled and entranced in what’s going on inside of the screen.
But it only lasts a few hours.
This weekend, I was reminded how short life is. Right now, my feet are tingling as I write this because it’s such a scary topic to discuss and not one that I like to think of very often. But alas, so is life.
I found out Saturday morning that my daddy had a mild heart attack. It hard to wrap my head and heart around since I’m a thousand miles away. I love him so much, and I’m so glad that it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. All in all, he is still here. That’s what matters.
Then, Sunday night, I found out that a friend of ours lost her son who had been missing. I cannot even fathom what that must feel like. I didn’t know him too well, but my heart still aches for their family. It’s such an awful thing. I don’t even know what to say about it.
I’m shown just how precious life is and how important it is to cherish each other while we’re here. It’s such a short amount of time. Please be kind to each other and tell those close to you that you love them.
