Life's never a guarantee

We had a death in the family this week, so I've been off in my own little world these days - and I'm not sure when I'll be back. Probably next week sometime. I do have a couple posts waiting to go, so if I get a chance I'll post them.
 
Until then, keep creating :) 

and, please, VALUE your friends and family. Take time out of your busy schedules and visit people. Spend time together. Even the ones who live "too far away."  Take Pictures. Even if it isn't a special occasion. Remember to enjoy the great moments - and the day to day stuff, too.

Coming to a funeral is important - but ideally isn't it better to see each other when we're still alive to all enjoy the time?!?! Don't waste it while you have it. You never know when you won't get the chance again. The chance to say, "I love you." The chance to say "til next time." The chance to say ... "I'm sorry."

You never know when it'll be too late. Seize the moment, and cherish life. This is the only one you get.

So sorry to hear that. And you're totally right, we have to spend the time together while we have it and cherish each moment.

Best thoughts to you and your family.

You amaze me with your words. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I think there is a Jonas Brothers song(sung my Nick Jonas when he was very young) that some what describes how you maybe are feeling.
" it might get rough sometimes, but i hope you keep your faith, i wish i grapped the chance to say to her, 'life is to short so take the time and appreciate' wonderin how or where to start, is there a way to shield our heart? Any body lovin will get hurt along the way. don't be afraid to open and use the time that you have before it fades. Show you love today"
When my best friend commited suicide, this song pulled me through everything, and the jonas brothers aren't really my favorite. but it helped. I am only sixteen, and have lost my grandpa(on my 6th birthday) to cancer,my other grandpa to cancer when i was 9, and my step grandma when i was 10. three cousins to suicide(with in 7 months of eachother)while i was 12, two cousins to an automobile accident when i was 12.my uncle who commited suicide when i was 14. And last year, my best friend in the world.
I don't know the circumstances of your family member, but I have been through so many circumstances of death, so I can relate to you. I know the feeling. I wouldn't wish this upon anyone.. You and your family are in my prayers.
xoxo

Thank you so much for the warm thoughts and comments! They mean a lot.

Meghan - I wish I could give you a hug! Thank you so much for those lyrics. and if I could be there hugging you, I'd say that no one should have to go through that many suicides in such a young life! I'm so sorry for your losses! I've had many close friends and family members die, too, and most of them were when I was really young. Life can be so unfair, can't it? Death is the means which defines life - yet we're never ready. We never embrace it, even when sometimes we maybe should. We're never ready to say that final goodbye to this life. And when a person you love takes their own life - it's like an extra knife in the wound. It's hard being the one left alive, sometimes. It's sad to see a life end and remember that hope can carry on. But it can! and does. I'm trying to find the joy, even in little things. Trying not to let myself gloss over life, but to actually live it and relish the moments I have.
