I put a quote at the bottom of my emails, in my signature line. My most recent one was:
"A year from now you may wish you had started today." Karen Lamb
Real Simple sends daily inspiring quotes and I received the above on the day before Jen went to the ER and found that the cancer had come back big time, March 15. The sudden in your face-ness of "life is short" became very clear over the whole weekend in talking to Jen and that quote made me realize that I better get my ass in gear to do the things I want to do. It's already been two months since then.
