Flash Fiction Friday- precious time

Every Friday write a short story, poem, limerick or prose. What ever tickles your fancy, then report it to the g-man!! don't forget to stop by and check out everyone else who plays the game!!

"Our daily lives are filled regularly to the brim

With laughter and joy and some trials within


So many days go by they all run together

It is easy to forget life doesn't last forever


As I watch a friend nearly lose her significant other


I find myself aware how precious our time is together"

Here ya go G-Man!! Story behind this a young couple I know is going through a medical emergency. They are sweet and under 30 they have a couple of young kids and he just graduated college. Tonight he coded and they brought him back. The roller coaster of emotions and just the thought of losing him, I can definitely put myself in her shoes!! My prayers and thoughts are with my friend and her family tonight. And I am going to go hug my sweetie now. I am very grateful for having him in my life today. I hope for many years to come.
Stay safe everyone I will stop by in the morning, when he is at work!!

Today's thought; "Sometimes life can throw you a curve ball, if you don't pay attention you just might miss it!! You never know where your next 'ah- ha' moment will come from."- me
live in the moment, and the moment is now...

I hope everything turns out ok for them.

That is a 55 that reflects so much. That is why, for me, one day at a time is where I try to be. I will hold these dear souls up in my thoughts today. May their HP meet them where their need is most.
