Life Doesn’t Come With Guarantees

I was at the cemetery and I saw a grave for a women that was 103 years old when she died.  Right next to her is the grave of a baby that only lived three months.

I stood there for a few minutes and thought about what I was seeing.  It reminded me that life doesn’t come with guarantees.  We are not promised tomorrow.  Life is not fair.

It also reminded me of the importance of making the most of each day and making sure my loved ones know how much I care about them.  I may never get another chance to make things right, so if owe anyone an apology or need to make amends I should do it as soon as I am made aware of my mistake.

Life is short and tomorrow may never come, so enjoy the moment while you have it.
