A Scottish Proverb to Live By

Be happy while you’re living,
for you’re a long time dead
—Scottish Proverb

What exactly does this mean to you?

To me, it reminds me of a friend's son who died in a senseless accident in late December. It reminds me that my father's roommate at the VA Home just passed away. It reminds me that a family member's recent surgery could have had a dire result, but I also celebrate that the tests came back normal.

I made no New Year's resolutions. Instead, I asked that we all slow down, see out doctors, eat sensibly, and enjoy life while we have another day.

Unlike the cool, crisp morning hubby and I spent recently in New Hampshire (see photo above), here in central North Carolina, the temperature is in the 70s. I think I'll take a walk.
