Live Like You Were Dying

I'm somewhat of a procrastinator, just ask my wife, she will tell you. She asked me to fix the hole in our floor before the baby was born. That baby turns fifteen this year...and that hole is still there. In 1993, I had a new rear window for my truck. In 2011, that window is still in a box sitting in my garage...and my brother now owns that truck.

Well, I'm turning over a new leaf. I've had a few loved ones pass away recently, went to funerals for friend's loved ones, and experienced a few near misses. Life's too short to procrastinate.

Take a moment to tell your loved ones you love them, hug your kids, plant a mushy kiss on your wife's cheek, and go to Italy. Yes, go to Italy. My wife's dream was to go to Italy, so we're taking the family to Italy. Not "maybe next year..." Not for our 25th wedding anniversary. Not after the kids are out of high school. We're going in June. Life's too short to wait!

My photo of the day is titled, "I Miss You." Don't miss the opportunity to do or say something from your heart....you never know if you'll have another chance.

  1. one of my favorite songs - it's the only way to live! I'm proud of you :)

  2. Thanks Faye! I'm not too smart...it took me way too long to figure it out. But I guess one can teach an old dog new tricks...
