    too many have passed from my life lately. i've lost 2 long lost flames, 1 real life friend, and now an online friend all in the last 6 months.

    some losses hit harder than others but they all hit home, and sometimes our losses make us lose sight of what's important and still available and at our fingertips. when we lose friends that loss leaves a void in our lives that if we're lucky will be filled by more friends to a small degree. if you lose 1 true friend then 6 others can't even fill that empty spot but they can ease the pain .

    life is fleeting and it's a trade off, but above all else no matter how good or bad it may be it is an adventure. if you're reading this now then you have a chance to enjoy your next breath and direct things in whatever direction you wish them to go.

    hug your family, love your friends, appreciate your small victories, and enjoy the life you're given every day.

    with that in mind remember this simple toast and raise your glass whether it be filled with spirits, soda, water, or just the joy of life itself...

    "the past is history, the future is a mystery, and right now is a gift which is why we call it the present."

    go forth and live friends, go forth and live.

    Been a rough stretch here too, starting just after Xmas 2011, and a flurry in the first 2 months of 2012.

    I attended over 7 funerals, mourned several more. Among them, mentors, hunting partners, buddy's, life long friends.

    Here's to the special people in, and out, of our lives. :hugs:
