Be Thankful and Live For the Moment

With Hurricane Katrina just finishing up here in the North east US, I was watching the news today and it suddenly hit me. Thank God I have my family, friends, health and house. Those poor people in the south, many of whom really are poor, have nothing now. They really have nothing.....They will have to start all over once again after all the water and storms subside. They will have to peice their lives back together, hopefully with all their families and friends safe and well. It makes one very grateful for where we live and what we have...even though it may seem like the world is coming to an end, there are people out there who really are having a more difficult time then you.
So take a minute, as I did today, hold your kids a little closer, call your friends, family, and loved ones and tell them how much they mean to you. You must live for the moment as you never know what is coming up next around the corner. By then you may not have had the opportunity to do or say something, don't wait.....
