Amazing Stuff - Grab Your Kleenex

I stumbled upon this the other day. I have read her posts over and over. Each time sniffling and sometimes out right bawling.

Honestly, I cannot even begin to imagine knowing that I am going to die in just a few short months. I can't imagine asking my doctor "how am I going to die".

For her, I wish her peace. I wish her as much joy as she can possibly have. I wish her fun. I wish her love. I wish her strength.

I wish everyone that she knows - her family and friends - the same. Please give her strength. Please support her. Please take her on fun and silly day trips. Go do goofy stuff. Take your shoes off and walk through fountains. Go to the zoo. Go to the beach. Ride the ferry in Galveston and throw bread at the seagulls. Go play putt-putt. Go to the movies. Get in your car and just drive.

Make memories.

And you know what? The rest of us should do this too. Life is too short.

I don't think I can go look at that gals blog. I read her first page & got the jist. We had a little girl last year & lost her as well. So, .....in a nutshell, I totally agree with this post you just wrote. Life's too short. Be who you are. "Live like you are dying" as Tim McGraw sings. Don't waste a moment.

I'm glad you posted the link to that gals webpage/blog. Alot of people don't ever experience something like that (thankfully). But they don't live life and savor each moment either.

I'm a completely different person now after losing our daughter. I would like to think a better person. Be that as it may, I would trade anything to have her back.

I blog about our experience, my children and our current journey to adopt a couple of children domestically.

Best wishes
