Live Each Day Like it's Your Last

Recently a posting I read by Becca over at Becca's Perspective has opened my eyes to an old quote "live each day like it's your last". I communicate quite frequently with Becca as we, along with another blogger, co-host Thank Goodness it's Friday (TGIF) Blog Hop. She has also been a pleasure to get know, as she has helped me quite a bit with this world of blogging.

Becca and I, live in different time zones and figuring out the time difference isn't exactly our forte. However, I had noticed a lot of the emails she has sent me were late at night. So needless to say last week, I emailed her and told her she needed to get some sleep. It was then she told me to check her archives regarding an emotional post she had written about a car accident she had been in. This posting would explain to me why she doesn't get much sleep.

Emotional is right. I read this posting, May you live all the days of your life. ~ Jonathan Swift, late at night, the twins and my husband both fast asleep. I teared up a little and had goose bumps the whole time. This person I've come to enjoy communicating almost daily with, is lucky to be here at all. I went to bed that night grateful for everything I had. My husband and I struggle a lot financially, but who doesn't. At least we have each other. There are days when Laura and Brady push me to the brink of insanity, but at least I have them.

I'd like to thank Becca for opening my eyes again. Before my husband left for work the following morning, I must have told him I loved him at least 3 times. It was later that day when I told him about Becca's accident that he knew why. He later told me it wasn't the amount of times I said it that had caught his attention, but instead the way I had said it.

I am going to borrow a line from an email Becca sent me. If you have 15 minutes to read an emotional post, hop over to Becca's Perspective and do so. 

Live each day like it's your last.


  1. Wow. I read Becca's post and can't imagine the hell she has been going through. Thank you for the reminder that we should treat each day as the precious gift it is.
