"One of the greatest gifts we can find in tragedy is awareness. We learn the value of a moment—of a second. We learn not to take any moment for granted, because each moment is special."
I love to read and someone sent me an article which contained this paragraph. I cannot credit the author because I don't know who wrote it, but I can relate to the words and found I wanted to share them because I want to emphasize the "value of a moment." T.J.'s death left me with the "gift of awareness" and I am treasuring each moment with my friends and family and even with myself. There is something to be said for quiet moments of reflection alone and finding a place of peace in your heart.
Sending you all love and T.J. hugs today and always.
