it’s always like this

i was ready to post the continuation of the wedding recap series today but got a disturbing call this morning

so instead i’m putting up a Call To Action.  i know people say this all the time and it’s depressing that we feel this way so much more strongly when something bad happens but that’s just the way it is.

so my Call To Action for each of you is to hug people tighter today.  remind them how much they mean to you and how much you really love them.  husbands, boyfriends, fiancees, girlfriends, moms, sisters, nieces, uncles, grandparents… and every single person you care about that you see today.  hold on tight.  we always tend to go about our lives thinking we’ve got so much time… but sometimes things happen and it just reminds you that no one is guaranteed a tomorrow.  we’re not guaranteed a minimum of 70 years, there’s no definites when it comes to time.

and when people around your age, people younger than your husband, pass in their sleep when they had a completely normal day it reminds you how precious time is. 

so while i sometimes roll my eyes and get irritated when people post messages like this, because really we SHOULD do this every day… today i’m that downer.  but i hope we all appreciate those we love and the fact that we get to spend even today with them a little more… if even for one day.



  1. You’re so right. I hope you’re ok.

  2. We get so caught it up our busy lives and schedules that it is easy to forget this. I will be sure to hug my hubby extra long tonight. No worries about posting this.

    Hope everything is alright!
