Live Well, Laugh Hard!

I can't sleep tonight yet I should be able to.  My Guy is in the next room snoaring lightly; healthy and here.  A dear friend is not as fortunate.  Last night she and her guy were home and within maybe a two hour time span, she lost him.  He passed away very suddenly.  No illness; no health issues.  Gone. Like. That.

Last night I could not let My Guy go.  I listened to him breathe.  And tonight, I wasn't sleepy but I crawled under the covers to just hug him...but I can't drift off.  My heart is so heavy for my friend.

Only a month ago, I received THE perfect birthday card.  It's all about laughing.  She knows I love a good laugh.  I thought I'd post a couple of GREAT pictures.  One a few years old, the other just last week.

(This picture will be a fixture in my mind forever!)

and then just last week....I get this:

... on my cell phone!
Two friends that probably DID fall off of their chairs.
And so my wish for you is:

We simply must live in the present and my blogging friend, Linsey has a beautiful
message about doing just that.)

Live well and laugh hard my friends!!!!
