Count your blessings!`

Today as I sit at my computer, I am drawn to 9 years ago. My 3 year old granddaughter and her 21 year old mommy (my son's high school sweetheart and fiance') were killed in a head on collision.

I am not writing for sympathy. I am long over that :) I am very thankful for the time I had with my family and I am very thankful that my than youngest granddaughter (11 months at the time) survived the accident.

I just want this to serve as a reminder to make sure your family and friends know you care about them. It is too easy to take life for granted.

God Bless you all!

So very true! Sometime we don't appreciate what we have till it's gone. And while you said you are not looking for sympathy, I'm very sorry to hear about such a terrible tragedy in your family.
