Thoughtful Thursday!

Two weeks ago today my boyfriend's friend slipped and fell in the bathroom and died. :rainbow: Yesterday a friend of a friend died in a tragic accident during a military exercise.

Both these incidents are sad and tragic of course. But more than anything I feel reminded of how narrow the line between life and death is. There's really one thing that each and everyone of us can be certain of - we're gonna die. So I just really wanted to remind you all to enjoy TODAY. We never know what's gonna happen, but we're here right now. So hug your hounds and your friends and family.




Have a little ice cream!

Enjoy the little things (don't buy cheap children, though!)

Jump! (And don't worry what others will think of you.)

Hug your friends and loved ones.

Make silly faces.

See? It's not hard. We just got to remember.
