Live each day as if it is your last!

Baby Avery is a 6-month-old girl who was born with a disease that doctors said would make it impossible for her to live past age 2. Her parents created a "bucket list" blog for her, written in her voice...a list of things she hoped to do in her short life. Sadly, she passed away yesterday. Some of the things on her bucket list:

1. Wake up smiling.

2. Have a bad hair day.

3. Talk to Mommy & Daddy.

4. Eat a cupcake and a Blow Pop.

5. Play with Play-Dough.

If you (and your kids) have had the opportunity to do these things (and many more!), you have more than many people in the world. Avery challenges us, in her short life, to appreciate every moment and live each day as if it is our last.

If today were your last day...what would YOU do?

Unsung Survival

The Unsung Hero Winner was Eileen from Martinez, CA here is her Unsung Hero:

Sara Blue has always been there for me. She helped to save my life more than once. Helping me find freedom from addictions and guiding me back to Jesus. She helped me be the best mother I could be for my daughter Eden Grace when I was newly sober and a single mother. Now I have three years of meaningful recovery and just got married to the man of my dreams, who she introduced me to! Sara is my best friend and a strong sister in Christ and I owe my new life to her and that's why she is my Unsung Hero.
