To all those who celebrate labor day, I wish you the best day possible and hope that you and your family/friends have a meaningful time today. I read a post by a colleague yesterday. The title of it was "live every day as if it were your last". He told the saga of the past few months and his mother's diagnosis with terminal cancer. However, even if you are in the best of health today, make sure you live today and don't put off what you want to do or whom you want to talk to. Do it now, do it today! Live your life today. I have found myself commenting lately that "I really want to do x, y, z after this computer project is done" - then I stop and think that I really need to do what I want today and not wait. I've put off too many things in my life as it is. Don't you make that mistake. Do you hear people say (or yourself) "when the kids are grown up, then I'll do a, b, or c"? Life is way too short to wait to do what we feel compelled to do. Do it NOW!.
This is a very poignant phrase to live by given our history 10 years ago this week. It's so hard to believe it was 10 years ago. But we were all going along on a sleepy morning when all of a sudden the world was turned on its head. As Alan Jackson wrote "Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning?". This week please think about what in your life has changed since 9-11 and what you have done to make every day more meaningful. Post in the comments if you want. You can post anything - memorials, thoughts, prayers, etc.
Enjoy your day and please pray for rain here in Texas.
