Being thankful

This has been an interesting week to say the least. I found out that a childhood friend of mine passed away. We had grown apart, quite a bit in fact, after high school. Well, to be honest we weren't even that close IN high school, but early childhood memories...she's apart of many of those. She went in for a routine surgery and then got a blood clot and it killer her. Very sad indeed, she is leaving behind six children varying in age from 18mos to 12 years.

This morning the company is doing another R.I.F. Great. My job is safe this time, however some really good people are being let go. After this is over our company will have been cut by 50%. Crazy times....

I'm so thankful for many things in my life, the biggest being that I'm just thankful to be alive. Having an old friend pass away makes you realize how precious life really is, and that we should be grateful and live life to the fullest. Hug those people close to you, share yourself and share your soul.
