morning by the water

I realized a few things this weekend:

+ Life is short.  Too short.  (I hugged my littles a bit longer than needed this weekend, and said an extra prayer.)

+ Some things are not worth arguing about.

+ The things that matter most in life are family and friends.

+ Never turn down a last minute Sunday brunch invitation with a girlfriend.  You'll have fun, I promise.

+ When faced with a decision on whether to buy something or experience something, always choose the experience. (Do you remember what you received for Christmas when you were 9?  But I bet you do remember the vacation your family took that year.)

+ How you start your morning, particularly if it is a morning by the water, can set the tone for your entire day.
