Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

What am I thankful for? Thankful for each day

Yesterday I found out that one of my classmates that I graduated 8th grade with passed away.  He was only 21, far too young to go.  His death was a complete surprise to me and the rest of my classmates.  Sure, I had not seen him since graduation but it never occurred to me that any of my classmates would pass away so young.  

With it being so close to Thanksgiving it reminds me to not take life for granted.  Treat each day as a gift!   

Some fabulous quotes about life:

“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson


“Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.” 

-Marilyn Monroe

And because I am a huge Harry Potter fan:

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” 
-J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
