‘Buy the Shoes- take 2

I have been hearing a lot of bad news lately. Contemporaries of mine who have either died or had major cardiac/cerebral events that were life threatening and forever life changing. It only takes a few of these tragic occasions to once again remind ourselves, that tomorrow is never guaranteed.

I blogged on this theme last year, with the message of ‘buy the shoes’. That blog was dedicated  to Wendy L- a lovely person who died way too young.  I am not quite sure how her whole story unfolded except to say she provided a life lesson to many.   Her unspoken message was really that life is short and don’t put off the things you wish to do and wait for a better time- because if you do wait- it just may be too late.

As is life, these sad events have only become more frequent. Today’s message is simply a reminder to ‘buy the shoes’.  Please heed Wendy’s life lesson and whatever it is you might be thinking about or wanting or wishing for- today is the day. Live it well and enjoy it.
