Rapid City, August 2009

A short vacation to visit with family and friends.
As always, I had a wonderful time! So good to see everyone and to catch up.

My friend in Alaska, Rebecca, lost her brother this month at the young age of 35. She offered up these incredibly insightful words in an email to me yesterday. I think a lot of us feel this way (I sure do!) but to see it in print written so eloquently was truly amazing. I wanted to share....

"Having lost some dear friends and now a brother, all in the prime of their lives, it is abundantly clear to me that there are no guarantees for a long life. We have only this moment, now, to be the best we can be, to love the most we can love, to give as much as we can give. There isn’t a moment to lose. Life is certainly filled with challenges and pain but the trick is to celebrate and appreciate all the beauty, because there is so much beauty and that’s what is worth remembering. The rest is just filler."

Thank you, Rebecca! I know in my heart that you will live each day you have to it's very fullest!
