Today I was fixing a cup of coffee and decided to use my mother's mug. Unlike myself who likes to collect coffee mugs from various places as souvenirs - my mother used one coffee mug for as long as I can remember. When she passed nearly 5 years ago, my father gave me her mug. It is plain, brown on the outside and white on the inside. No logos, no pictures, no words adorn it.
But it speaks volumes to me.

Yesterday he got the news that a classmate from high school had died and a dorm neighbor from college had been found dead the day after he left. We don't have details on either one yet, but the tragedy is the same.
I was reminded of a couple of tragic deaths during my teen years of two young men. One from a car accident and one by his own hand. Both deaths had a very big impact on me.
Tragedies such as this reminds me how precious life is and our time together with friends and family should not be regarded lightly.
Go hug your kids (physically or verbally) today.

It might be a full night of slumber, tucked cosily into my bed, or it might be an afternoon nap curled up on the sofa with my dog. Sometimes it's a quick eye closer sitting in the passenger seat of the car on a trip. However it comes, a good Zzz fest is refreshing for the mind, soul and body.
