Take Photos While You Can

So, maybe you're wondering why I have a picture of a baby preceeding that paragraph.  Well, that's my son (which you'd realize if you've even skimmed by blog).  His name is Jaxson, and he's my baby boy.  I love that little guy more than just about anything.

My friend's passing has made me realize just how important my son is, how important my wife is, and how important all of my friends are.  We have no guarantees in this life.  None.  Sure, the sun will rise every day in the east and set in the west, but you're not guaranteed to see it.  You're not even guaranteed another breath.
