Thoughts about living life to the fullest....

Jus recently,
I was listening to the radio and an old song popped on....
Live Like You Were Dying
by Tim McGraw.

It renewed my perspective about living life to the fullest... :-)

Basically, the song talks about someone who was told they had a terminal illness and their advice about living life to the fullest....

Seems like the holidays tend to bring a lot of funerals (I talked to about the 8th person with a funeral over the past 2 weeks!) so, I thought I'd post the link, for anyone who wants to see the lyrics or hear the song....

Those are great lyrics! I also like the song-- forget the exact title-- I Hope You Will Dance!
Anyway, I often find myself getting caught up in stuff that isn't important and I have to remind myself that there are so many beautiful things in life and to enjoy them, especially my 2 precious boys who are growing up too quickly. Life is too short to stress over the little things! Happy day everyone!

To the 2:41 poster--thanks for the insite, I knew from the passion in the song that it had to be something close to home...

One of my co-workers is going through cancer. There are some students supporting him via "Relay for Life" this weekend in Michigan. I plan to walk in support of him as well.

This song reminds me of him--he's one tough cookie-- in the face of a seemingly aggressive cancer, he sends out emails that are impossibly funny, but at the same time make me want to cry. It's incredible how finding out that a person has a terminal illness at a young age can change your perspective on life.
