Most of us go about our daily lives not thinking too much about how much time we have left on Big Blue.
I know I do.
Work. Kids. Bills. Aging parents.
Then, out of the blue, something hits very close to us that forces up to re-examine our lives.
The stuff that really matters comes to the forefront, and the rest just seems to fade out of sight.
I received my latest wake-up call not too long ago.
The woman in the video above, Amanda Pumm Bernier, is the daughter of a very good friend of mine.
She just found out that she's pregnant with her first child, she turned the big 3-0 and she was diagnosed with ALS. Literally, this all happened within a week or 2.
It breaks my heart. Amandas Mother and Grandmother died from ALS.
Amanda is due to give birth in November, and at the rate her ALS is progressing, she may not live long enough to see her daughters (yes, it's a girl!) face.
Amanda and her husband Chris are both volunteer Firefighters and EMT's. She's also a tri-athlete and one of the kindest and sweetest people I know. Amanda always has a smile on her face and is remaining very positive and upbeat.
I don't normally ask for anything from anyone, but I would ask anyone who is reading this to consider making a donation to help this amazing couple.

Many thanks and much love to all of you!
Don't postpone joy ..... tomorrow isn't promised.
