Appreciate your loved ones

I have a couple comments I want to get to, and I will tomorrow. I'm not really on tonight, but I wanted to post so I stay in the habit.

We had sobering news this morning. Craig's aunt passed away over the weekend. She was diagnosed with liver cancer last fall and was given a prognosis that wouldn't have her lasting much after the New Year. She beat that with attitude and bravery and she's been going pretty strong all this time. In fact, when we last talked to them last Thursday, she was as fine as she'd been all along. Ornery and opinionated as ever, with talk about visiting their daughter for the weekend. However, on Saturday, one of her tumors decided to grow at a scary rate and pushed against her diaphragm enough to cut off her breathing. She died within 24 hours of going to the hospital. :(

So do me a favor today, and hug your loved ones. Tell them how much you appreciate having them in your lives. Savor every second. You just don't know when it will all be taken away from you.
