Touching E-mail

I received this e-mail today from my BFF, Mrs. T. It really hits things home. So much of my life has been sad but SO much more has been good. I have a beautiful daughter, a handsome, loving and great husband, and am surrounded by awesome family and friends that have become family. I know things in my life aren't where I want them to be. I know there are so many people in my life that aren't here anymore that I miss terribly and that their deaths have changed me. I cannot let these tragedies and life circumstances drain me of the happiness that I do have in my life.

Thank you all for being part of that happiness!

Here's the e-mail:


As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that
wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You
will have your heart broken probably more than once and
it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so
remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight
with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things
an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast,
and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too
many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never
been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset
is a minute of happiness you'll never get back. Don't be
afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never
begin.
