living in the moment~ an inspirational story


I stumbled across this story today.

I don't know that i have ever heard a more tender story of bravery,
unconditional sacrificial love,
& the joy of living your life to the fullest --each moment.
The link i have is actually from snopes which a longer version of the story.
I urge you to take the 120 seconds it will take to read this.....

Personally, I pray I learn from this story....that i take to heart the lesson from this beautiful bride ....that i learn to not live a life wrapped up in fear (which i struggle with frequently) ...
that I take each day as a blessing & live it , out loud, to its fullest blessing.

you must click on the words/text to go to the photo essay
...then click the little bubbles at the bottom of the page. )

This really puts life into perspective. It's a bitter sweet story that can't help but tug at the heart. Thank you for sharing this. It makes me want to be the best wife I can be to my husband.

So beautiful Paige! We just can't take anything for granted can we? Oh, if my husband were home I would SO go snuggle him right now!!!

I saw this on a blog yesterday too. It is such a beautiful, heart-breaking story. Gives me chills. How easy it is to take so much for granted.

It is amazing...thank you.

I too strugle a lot not to wrap up my life in fear, not to have the fear of loss darkening my most precious moments. Time is infinite while it lasts...and I guess that´s what we have to keep in mind.

Have a great day, filled with precious moments. By the way, I love the pictures on your blog. They seem to capture the beauty and happiness beyond the visible. Thanl you for them as well.

Paige,

Thank you for sharing this beautiful story. It was such a great reminder of how precious life is.

As I was reading the story, I just kept thinking what love, strength and courage those two young people had. What a beautiful couple.

I've been reading your blog for a while, but am only now commenting. I knew Katie most of her life. Our families attended church together and I was several years older than she was and babysat for her and her sister. She was truly an amazing girl and then woman. Please pray for her family...her mom and sister especially...her father, David just passed away in March after a long battle with cancer.

What a heartbreaking story, with a wonderful lesson. I truly feel most problems are surmountable as long as you, and the ones you love, have their health. I do know from personal experience that when your health, or your child's health, is threatened, everything else falls away.

Thanks you for sharing this. Your blog (and you) inspires me every time I visit.

Cheers,
Linda

Amazing. Living out loud in a true sense!

Life can rain and yes we should keep our heads up, but not so up and not moving forward that we get drowned by the rain (fear) that is trying to cleanse us and make us better for Him.

What an inspiration this girl and her husband are!

Thank you for sharing this. I have been going through a difficult situation and I find myself feeling sorry for myself and being a general downer. I need to remember that life is what we make of it....trials or not.
