Shortly before my tita died more than 2 years ago, a result of taking her diabetes for granted, she stared at my mother with a forlorn look in her eyes. That she didn’t expect that her carelessness would lead to her amputated leg and very soon her death. Her eyes said if she could only turn back time she would have done things differently.

I think of this now as I read a John Grisham short story about retirement homes from his book Ford County. I want to die in old age with a satisfied look in my face. That I had lived the life. That I had loved. That I had shared my blessings. That I had traveled and seen places most people have not.

So, to you who have read this entry – Carpe Diem. Seize the day. Better yet seize the life. Seize the good opportunities. Live. Be happy. Take risks. Don’t worry too much. Love. Travel. Share what you have however small. Smile. Maintain friendships.

Always think that God does not give us a cross that we cannot carry. Always think that He is always there, carrying the cross with us. Hold on. Be strong. Have faith. Believe.

Go and live the life.
