So Thankful

As Thanksgiving approaches, I realize how lucky I am to be here to celebrate with family and friends.  Last year I had a cardio workup due to a strong family history of heart disease. Earlier this week I underwent an investigative angiogram  to look at the condition of my heart as prior tests were inconclusive.  To my dismay three serious   blockages (99%, 90% and 70%) were discovered  and repaired with stents.  I had know idea I had been a time-bomb ready to go off at any given moment.

This has been a major AHA  moment in my life.  We are all on borrowed time in this world.  I have taken so much for granted and have often had the mindset that if I don’t feel like to doing something today there will always be tomorrow.  I encourage all of you to appreciate today – the sunrise, the air we breathe, the rain, the wind on your face, the beauty of nature, and of course the people who touch our lives along the journey of life.  Every day is a gift. Cherish it!  Tim McGraw’s  song “Live Like You Were Dying”  pretty much says it all!

 

Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!
