The Personal Ramblings of Samm Diep

live ~ laugh ~ love

Gratitude. It’s a terrible thing to waste.

On this weekend, we lost a wonderful soul from our pool community, Stub Foley. I then see on FB that my friend Melinda from Texas also lost her mom on the same day. I believe it was not too big of a surprise in both cases but it reminded me of when I lost my last surviving grandparent. I was only 14.

This weekend’s deaths also reminded me of how precious life truly is. In an instant, the we people we care so much about can be taken away from us.

If there’s one positive thing I can take away from all of this, that is to remember to be grateful for the special people that I have in my life. If I feel like telling someone I love them or miss them or care about them, I’m going to!

The time you spend with someone could always be your last.
