On hearing the very sad news that Eric Meyer's daughter had passed, it was impossible to not be moved.
I found myself taking a moment to reflect on a life cut tragically short. It's a much needed reminder of how life is a gift and something we must not ever take for granted.
It's all too easy to get consumed by some aspects of our lives, sometimes at the expense of other things, people, family and friends.
We owe it to ourselves to find a balance, to work hard but also have time to spend with our families and friends and to value what we have.
This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds. To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance. A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky
It's stories like Rebecca's that teach you that life is both precious and short. If we aren't mindful of this it will be all too easy to let life pass us by and miss everything that was truly important.
