Every Day Is A Gift


I will look at the day as a gift.

I will not take anything for granted.

I will hug you and kiss you more.

I will hug and kiss my kids more.

I will make sure my family knows how much I love them.

I won't worry about the small stuff so much.

I will live for today because tomorrow is not certain.

The end of last week shook me to my core and changed my life forever. These few lines are written to my husband. My husband started a new antibiotic for an infection and he had a severe, almost fatal allergic reaction. I still can't wrap my head around the fact that I could have lost him. I am even more grateful that I already was for each day. We all know that not every day is promised to us, but when something like this happens it just reminds us not to take anything or anyone for granted. I love you my wonderful husband and could not live my life without you.
