The important point to keep clear is that you are thankful. Never take for granted the things in your life that make up your life. Enjoy the air that you breath and the love of those that care about you. Fondly remember those that were here but now live in our memories and be thankful that you had them in your life, no matter the duration.
Be cognizant of the reality that life certainly is fleeting and that you should take moments within every day to say "thank you" and be as kind as possible to those around you. Hug your family, reach out to friends and embrace your world with enthusiasm and an appreciation for life.
