Thinking of Jenna

I've been thinking a lot about Jenna and her family this weekend. Her brother passed away over the weekend and I can't help but feel so incredibly sad for her. I know how hard it is to lose someone so close to you so suddenly and I know that Jenna will have a challenging journey of grief and healing ahead of her. She is surrounded by family and friends who love her and together they will celebrate John's life. 

If I had my life to live over again, I'd try to make more mistakes next time. I would relax. I'd be sillier than I have been on this trip. I would climb more mountains, swim more rivers and watch more sunsets. I would have more actual troubles and less imaginary ones. Oh, I've had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I'd have more of them. In fact, I'd try to have nothing else, just moments, one after another... I would pick more daisies.

Death makes me think about life. Our time on earth can end so abruptly and it is so important to try and live each day to its fullest potential. Don't wait until tomorrow. Make today count.
