Long Time No Write...And A Note About Life

Life has been busy lately and unfortunately blogging has had to take a back seat for a little while. I've missed it tremendously. For me, writing is like talking to a friend. I've missed talking to my friend!

It's 2:30 a.m. and I'm sitting in a hotel room in Memphis, TN listening to my sweet boy snore his heart out. We try to visit a big city every year during spring break. Memphis was the pick this year since Brenn wanted to see a Memphis Grizzlies game. We've had a great time.




It's during quiet times like this that I take stock of my life. Today, I cried over the loss of someone I never met, but I felt connected to in a special way. She was a single mom of a daughter just a year older than Brenn. This special lady was a fun, outgoing person who made everyone laugh. She and I would converse regularly on Facebook about whatever Real Housewives series was airing at the time.

I could also tell that she was crazy about her daughter and made an effort to create unforgettable memories. I cannot imagine what her daughter and family are going through right now. I know that this tragic loss has reminded me of how important it is to make and preserve memories.

Are my priorities correct? Do I spend enough time with my son? Do I work too much? Do I show those I love how much I love them? Do I take for granted the blessings I have?

I don't know how much time I have left on this earth. I don't even know how much time Brenn has on this earth. Every moment is precious. Every hug is important. Every spoken word, whether good or bad, cannot be retrieved.

Life is precious. Memories are important.
