Two weeks ago, my step dad passed away suddenly. I remember I was doing something on the computer when I received a call from mom. Her voice was shaky saying that she found my step dad on the carpet, not breathing. We rang 000 straightaway (which was like 911 in the US) but it was all too late.
It was a shocking news to all of us, as he was very fit. He loved sports, gardening and was pretty much an active person. A week later, we got another news that a close friend to my step dad, who also went to the same church as us, got a major stroke and within few hours also passed away.
During this period, I had the chance to stop and ponder.

Life is precious and is short. It's like a vapor. We do not know what is going to happen the next minute, the next hour, tomorrow or next year.
These incidents made me see life in a different perspective. I sometimes worry about little things or argue with hubsey about things that are not really important.
I have been asking myself lately: "Have I shown the people I love, how much I care for them? Do they know that they matter to me? Have I done something with my life that's worth remembering?"
There's more to life.
Life is not about how much money we make, or how successful we are. It is not about how many people follow my blog, pinterest or other social media.
I'm learning to live my life one day at a time. Caring for people around me more. Worry less. Think more about things above, and not temporary things of this earth.
John 10: 10 "A thief comes to steal and kill and destroy, but I (Jesus) came to give life - life in all its fullness."
Please take care
