A week ago today I received news that a very dear friend passed away in the middle of the night.  She was truly the best woman I know and it was completely shocking news (as was evidenced by the 1,200 people who attended her memorial service!).  I was stunned and frozen in place for days.  Her death has made me realize that I am not the person I want to be and that time on earth is short. 

There are a number of attitudes that I would like to adjust (yes, only mine...although I could suggest some for a few others...but i won't LOL). I want to really embrace each day with the expectation that something GREAT will happen.  I want to SEE others in a new way...with compassion and love. I want to go to sleep each night knowing that I made it a fabulous day and that I cared for people that day. I want to make sure my family knows that I love them every single day...I want to re-energize my relationship with Jesus as I have not held up my end of the bargain for quite some time.  I want to LIVE each day to it's fullest potential!!!

I have a lot of work to do, but I don't want to be complacent anymore, I want to be completely intentional about everything I do and make a difference. 

"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."  Philippians 3:12-14

I want to FINISH STRONG!!!
