Tomorrow February 24th. my brothers birthday. He would have been 29. I often wish I could turn back time to change some of the choices I have made but we all know that is something you just can't do. I wish I would have said so much more to him when he was here. If I had know that his life would have been so short I would of done things differently. So on this day I always reflect on my life and try to make it better. Because I have a life to live. It is a gift and sometimes that is hard to remember. The past is the past and the future is the future. So please today in memory of my brother who was a son, friend, cousin, lover & brother. Forgive, Love, Change, Help... Let the people you love know that you love them. Because you never know when the last time maybe. Live life like there is no tomorrow.

The pastor spoke at my grandfathers funeral and I was touched by her service. She spoke of when you die they mark your tombstone with the years of birth and death. It seems that these dates were your life and they define you. But it is really not the years on the tombstone that mean anything it is the dash.

It is so hard to read that with this specific song playing in the back ground.
I wish at times I could travel back in time and warn myself, but I know that I cannot.
So, tonight I shed a tear for my brother who I lost in 1998. I will also shed a tear for my sister who is 800 miles away.

Everyday is a new day, a start over fresh day. We just all have to try and be the best we can be to each other.
