Your life can change in an instant. Yes, it seems trite and repititous. Yet the very simplest of statements are often the truest.
My father died yesterday. Peacefully and without pain after years of pain and loss of dignity. We re all feeling a strange emotional mixture of relief and grief.
I think because of his death and my recent brush with another mass have made think of the how precious our time is on earth.
Actually, we can think of that as death's gift. Death as a reminder of life.
