The other day, I received a text advising that an extended family member had been killed in a car crash. While I was not close to this person, I could not help but think:
"Wow, just like that...gone".
In an instant, one life is gone and the lives of those close to them are changed forever. Just like that.
Life can change in an instant and as careful as we all are, bad things can happen.
I try to use these times to make sure I appreciate those around me, to love my friends and family and to let them know I do, through words and through actions. To not take things for granted.
I hope you do the same. And thanks for reading.
