I just want to say how grateful I am to those in my life, including my cyberfriends here.

A friend had a totally unexpected near-death experience during surgery yesterday. I was in the waiting room when it happened. I am extremely glad to report that she is making a miraculous recovery. The gift of this extremely upsetting experience is that I have been reminded of how incredibly short life can be, and how I really need to seize every moment.

While I was waiting after all of this happened, all I could think of is what I had not done. I had not even taken a picture with her at my sons bday party this past weekend. There were so many things that raced through my head, and I didnt know if I would get the chance to make those things right with her. Now I will be able to. And I am so, so, grateful.

I am still very shell-shocked, but also glad for the excellent outcome and the reminder to enjoy every minute.

Thank you, all of you, for always reading my posts and responding with such generous hearts. I really appreciate it.

I'm glad she is recovering okay. I've had a couple of scary but ultimately clarifying experiences lately. It does make one appreciate the many gifts and blessings in life.

I hope your friend continues to thrive and you enjoy many more decades of friendship together.

Now that I'm 50 I'm starting to be more aware too.

I hope that your friend makes a speedy and complete recovery. Thank goodness it was only a scare.

Take care and hug your loved ones close.

Yes, this is a reminder about what's important in life. I'm glad your friend will be okay, and you will have a chance to make up for what you regretted not doing. Such a chance doesn't come along too often!
