My mother in law dies of a heart attack at 54 years old. My own mother has a stroke that leaves his paralized at 53. In the past four years, my husband and I have had to deal with things that honestly, we are too young for. We should be dealing with these things when our parents are in their 80's, not 50's! Our children should have their grandparents at their weddings. In the past weeks since my mother in law's death, I have been thinking. I don't want my kids to have to bury me at 54 years old or be taking care of me at 53. I don't want them raising their small kids while dealing with this. I have always been pretty active and eating ok, but latley I am more determined to do what I can to make sure my kids don't have to go through all this at such a young age! I am on a personal campaign to eat better, exercise more, and do everything I can do live longer. If not for me, but for my boys. I know that stuff can still happen. I could die is a car wreck tomorrow, but I am gonna do everything I can anyway!

The sudden death of my mother in law really reminded me how short life is. Reminds me to love people more and not hold grudges over anyway cause what if they or you are gone the next day. I have some people in my family who I have been kinda "annoyed" at, but I am getting over it cause it doesn't matter. I am choosing to be more forgiving. I am also reminded at how I need to live every moment of my life for Jesus Christ and spend my days preaching his word and sharing his love with others! Sometimes we take for granted that life will be here tomorrow, but we don't have that gaurantee. I wanna tell people I love them everytime I see them, I wanna show Christ love in every thing I do and say. Not be a gossip or have hate in my heart.
