Every Day Is A Gift

Life truly is a gift from God. Each day we have to be with our loved ones should be embraced and cherished.
I found myself sitting at my craft table yesterday, wanting to make something to take my mind of the loss of my niece, Jessica, and I just couldn't focus. Her funeral was on Saturday and it was a wonderful celebration of her life. Tearful, joyful, memories shared...
Hug your loved ones tighter, hold them in your arms a little longer. Tell them more often just how wonderful they are and how much you love them. Be quicker to forgive and wipe the score board clear after each offense. Laugh together more often and hold them tight when they cry. Life is a gift. We should be quick to accept that gift and cherish it anew every day.

Made with scraps sitting on my table, because I couldn't do anything else.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. ~ Hugs ~ Birgit
