the weekend was filled with sadness and shock.
we lost a very close family member on thursday night
that left us reeling, devastated and sad.
the weekend was spent not only comforting and consoling but celebrating his life; laughing with cousins and just being in each other's presence.
i've experienced too much tragedy and death too many times in the past 9 years
which is why i live my life to the fullest.
family and friends come first; everything else is trivial.
work is work, it'll always be there; don't sacrifice your family time.
material things are just that: things that can be replaced.
your career, while important, isn't the be all, end all.
live a little, take some risks.
express to those who you love how much you love them and tell them often
because you never know what may happen.
