Never Taking It For Granted

I’ve been catching up on my episodes of Deadliest Catch and the biggest ongoing storyline is the one surrounding Captain Phil and his two sons, Jake and Josh.

Y’see…for those unaware, Captain Phil Harris passed away near the end of filming this past season from complications after having a major stroke.  As I’m watching these episodes, it’s really hitting home that you never can take it for granted.  What’s “it”?

LOVE, friends.

So as I enjoy this long weekend and spend the day with Ankle Biter (I’m a Canuck working American holidays…hence getting today off), I’m reminded to never forget to tell him that I love him.  I’m reminded to tell my mom and dad that I love them.  I’m reminded to tell my friends just how much they mean to me.

You never know what’s going to happen in life. NEVER take the good things for granted.

  1. My dad passed away June 27th of a heart attack at the age of 81, three months and one week after my ex-husband died a very tragic death( i’ve talked about it here before).Please remember to tell those you care about that you love them, death is final. I just wish that I had one more day with each of them.

  2. So true. I have been seeing your comments on some other blogs and finally decided to check out your blog. And I get to read this! Wonderful…I think I need to go hug my kiddo!

  3. Wow, that struck me the same way…when I heard he had passed away (love that show too!), and it really does make you think – love the ones you’re with, especially your family.
