Something is wrong with me this week. I'm over the moon happy. Like ridiculously, overjoyed to be alive, happy. I am a happy person in general, with the exception of when the depression cycle hits, but this is like a drug. It does remind me of the feeling of one particular drug I may or may not have tried in my younger days.
My gleefulness ceased when I happened to come across a tragic story. A Houston family returning from a family vacation in a minivan got in a tragic accident killing both parents and leaving two of the three children under the age of ten paralyzed.

I took it as another reminder that life can change in an instant. As many times as life reminds me of this, I often take it for granted in my day to day life. I might not have my dream job, but I have just about everything else I could possibly need and want. Life is good and I am grateful.
