Happy & Sad News

Today is my parents wedding anniversary.
If my pregnant brain is working correctly today, they've been married 33 years. Cause my brother is 32 and he was born 10 months after their wedding. Yes I think that's right?!?!
I just want to say congrats and I love you both very much.
In sad news....
Last year on one of our visits to our breeder before officially taking Boone home.
Our breeder had mentioned how excited she was about the soon to be birth of a grandchild.
We found out today that her 14 month old grandson drowned.
I just want to send out our thoughts and prayers to the family. 
And please remember them as they go through this very difficult time.
I can't even imagine how the must feel.
Also please remember the Caines family. 
If you've been watching the news most of you have heard about the freak accident of a young 5 year old boy getting hit by lightning in Brampton. 
Well he did pass away from his injuries and now the family is trying to deal with not only a tragic loss but just the shock of something so unlikely happening to their child.
I know a few members of the family though I didn't know the 5 year old boy or his mom personally. His Dad was a childhood friend of mine and I'm still friends with his sister (the 5 year olds aunt)
This reminds us that time is precious, that tragedy is a fact of life and it might be us who has to deal with our own tragedy at any moment.
Don't take anything for granted....tell your family & friends you LOVE them. 
You might not have the chance tomorrow.
Today's Quote
Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
Shes lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feel
About her in my heart
If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That shes my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes
cause Ive lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where theres no second chance to tell her how I feel
So tell that someone that you love
Just what youre thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

Happy Anniversary to your parents. Terrible tragedies - the loss of those two little ones. I can't even imagine having to go through something like that. It makes me cry just thinking of someone else!
