Today is the first day of the rest of your life - Unknown

This was something my mom used to have hanging in our living room, and since Jeremy passed away, it's something that is very close to my heart. Why? I'm still trying to sort through my heart and soul for the answer. 

There are so many quotes I never paid attention to when I still had my husband and our life together. However, since the day he died, a lot of those quotes have made their way into the essence of my being. Here are a few of them:

Life is too short. Losing Jeremy at 34 years old, was all the proof I needed of this.

Don't sweat the small stuff. Things are going to happen, which are out of our control, and the small things are not important enough to stress over or create havoc because of. 

Make the best of each day. We are not guaranteed tomorrow so, greet each day with a positive attitude, and be grateful of the people we have in our lives.

Stop and smell the roses. Every once in a while, we should put our electronic devices down, get dressed (according to the weather), and enjoy the great outdoors. Don't take this life for granted.

Just thought I'd share. You are welcome to share some of the quotes that are significant to you.

Today's Entry

I'm in a somber mood, tonight. I really don't even want to do my journal entry, but I have been doing better with getting an entry done on a daily basis, and I don't want to fall out of the habit just because my heart hurts.My ex brother-in-law was admitted to the hospital last night for smoke inhalation. They were saying that they didn't know if he was going to make it at one point. His trailer caught fire, and he was not aware that his girlfriend Linda had made it out of the window. James had…See More
