Each day's a gift and not a given right.

Each day's a gift and not a given right - Nickelback

I was going to do YA Highway, but then I read this post by Sarah Enni.

Please go read it.  I'll wait while you do.

Thank you.

Sarah's post is a reminder for so many things.

As Christmas approaches, please remember to enjoy it.

Live each day so that if you never get tomorrow, you'll have as few regrets as possible.

Tell the people you love that you love them, every time they walk out the door and every time you get off the phone.

Take a deep breath before arguing. Decide if it's really worth it (this one I especially can work on).

Avoid fighting unless you really have to, but don't let anyone run you over either.

Be deliberate in your actions.  Think before you speak.

As Sarah said, follow your dreams.

Choose to be happy.  It's okay to be sad, to grieve, to be down, but getting back up is vital.

And always be kind, especially to the ones who really need it.

I'm closing shop for the holidays to spend time with my family. I wish each and every one of you a safe, loving Christmas.  It's looking like it might be a White Christmas for us, which would be a first in my life, so I'm very excited for that possibility.

See y'all in 2011!

I have not been able to get Sarah's site to load all day. *grumble*

But you're right. We all need to take stock in how lucky we are. Big hugs. I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family.

I haven't been able to get to Sarah's site, either. :( Love this post though. I complain and moan about a lot of little things, but this is a reminder that I need to be grateful for what I have. I hope you have a good holiday.
