Carpe Diem! and Treasure Your Girlfriends! Those are my 'words to live by' this week.

I called my college roommate (from 30+ years ago!) yesterday and she shyly told me she'd been in an accident. "But I'm OK!" she kept saying. "I'm OK!" She walked away from a plane crash! She walked away while others were not so lucky. I am so grateful that she is still alive! TBTG!

So once again we are shown how precious and precarious life is. Be good to yourself, and be good to your girlfriends. We are so fortunate to have this (virtual) time together.

Oh God! She is so very lucky!! You're right. We should be living every day as if it is special, because it is.
