My family and I went to a funeral on Wednesday. A good friend's sister had passed away. It was a complete shock to everyone, especially my friend, since they had just been together for Easter. No one could figure out how she died or why. It was just one of those odd deaths with no warning.
Delia's passing has made me ponder my family a bit, as all deaths do. But this one has really opened my eyes to see the world around me. Life is so fragile. We really have no idea when the Lord will call us back. None at all. If you have a dream, if you have an idea of who you want to be or what you would like to do, time is short. I suggest you get on your knees, pour your heart out to our Heavenly Father--asking him for guidance, and then I suggest you do what you've always wanted to do.
Just like that.
Seize the day.
I know I've only gotten as far as I have, written as much as I have, and dreamed as big as I have, with my Heavenly Father's help. He wants us to succeed. He wants us to learn all we can before He calls us home and we begin our real work.
Enjoy what you have around you. Embrace your family and friends.
Embrace your quirks and inconsistencies that make you, you.
But most importantly, be grateful our Heavenly Father has given you another day to see your dreams become reality.
Carpe Diem, girls. Live the dream.
