Friends

One of our close friends lost his mother today.  If you have a moment, please say a quick prayer for him and his wife.  It has made me stop and think about how short our time here really is.  Why do we spend so much of it worrying that things are just so?  Why don't we spend it together?  Travis and I have  discussed this many times in the past few years as we've experienced losses of family and friends.  We have made a point of spending as much time with our loved ones as we can possibly manage.  We make efforts to keep in touch with all of you because you matter to us.  You have come into our lives and made an impact in some way or another.  In case we don't say it enough, thank you.  Thank you for all that you have brought into our lives, in ways that you probably don't even know.  Thank you.
