Go Ahead. Count 'Em.

I woke up early this morning and in a pretty damned good mood. It's been kind of a roller coaster ride emotionally here in Tammi's World lately. Don't know what's up with that, but it is what it is - so you roll with it.

Yesterday was a pretty long drawn out day. Seemed like I just couldn't finish anything I started. I really hate days like that. VERY frustrating.

But as I was drifting off to sleep last night, saying prayers for those I love, I just had to smile. Pictures of each person bright and focused in my mind's eye as I thought of them.

Is there any better way to end your day than thinking of those that matter most to you? Counting your blessings, as it were.

And I truly believe THAT is why my day started with a smile. Those thoughts, those images were the last thing I saw last night and the first thing I thought of this morning.

NEVER take the ones you love for granted. NEVER assume they will always be there. TREASURE each and every memory.

I know I've said it a thousand times, but Daddy was right. Live your life so you never have to say I wish I had, or I wonder if.

Especially when it comes to those you care about.

That reminds me of a very cool line from an old song called "Enjoy Yourself," which goes: "It's better to have had your wish than to have wish[ed] you had."

I like to think I remember this, but truth is it does slip by the wayside... thanks for the reminder! :D
