Yesterday I was trash talking a board member (nice lady who ticked me off with a clueless voice mail she left me on Monday), and today her husband calls me and says she's in a coma in intensive care after suffering an aneurysm.

She's one of my chairpeople, and I've known her for years. A retired schoolteacher who just turned 60, a woman who almost always has a smile on her face.

Life is short and uncertain. There's no time to put off being happy, and too much time is wasted bitching about things and people. (Like my bitching yesterday.)

I'm going to try harder to be positive.

I'm so sorry to hear that...

Don't feel bad. Anything can happen. We're only human and we tend to say things sometimes, after all.

But I do agree there's no time to put off being happy! Jimmy and I think about that all the time.

I can't imagine anyone being more positive than you are, so don't go getting too perfect on me! LOL.

Hugs and Love,

Bri's right, sweetie. I can't tell you how many times I could kick myself for saying something negative about someone and then find out something's happened to them. I try to say the right thing and do the right thing, but as Bri said, we are only human. You're perfect in every way. And besides, we love you just as you are.

Big hug,

Hot, hot icon, Laurie! You're burning me up here!!!

(I'm fanning myself...)

Hee-hee! I'm glad to have helped, Bri! LOL!

Wow, life is short. And we take people for granted, that's for sure. It's human nature. Thanks for sharing this and reminding us to try not to do that. And for sharing your own imperfections. We're all human, and we can always do better.

Don't fault yourself. If you knew what would happen you would never have said those things. But that's the way life works. And it was a small thing that you did. It was only human and none of us are perfect. That's why we can love each other and have understanding.

My father had an aneurysm and I thought of all the things I should have done, and all the things I shouldn't have done. It works that way. It hurts.

You're a good person or you wouldn't give it that much thought.
