Here's to the Life We Live Today...

While commenting on my last post about the frailty of life, a friend wrote me that she recently decided to open a bottle of expensive wine that they were saving for a special occasion with her husband, after hearing that a mutual friend suffered a stroke and nearly died.

She said to her husband, "Today, is as special as any," and they enjoyed a few glasses together and then finished the bottle with another couple the next day.

I answered her, "We always think about saving an expensive bottle of wine for a great occasion but, as you alluded to, every breath we take is a great occasion!"

So, uncork that bottle you've been saving and pour yourself a tall glass because life is short and we never know if tomorrow will ever come...
