“If you could hear me, I would say that our fingerprints don’t fade from the lives we’ve touched”

Almost a year ago to the day, I started a new blog with a post on reflection.  As we are in the middle of the holiday season now, I am reminded of that post and of what the season truly means.  During the holiday season we often get so wrapped up in gifts and giving, that we forget about all the things we already have, that cannot be bought.
Today a young girl at Texas Tech lost her life, due to a car accident two days ago.  Although I did not know this young lady, so many others did.  It is so easy to say that this tragedy is worsened by the holiday season, but the truth is, a death is a tragedy no matter the time.  In just 19 short years, this girl had made an image for herself and touched the lives of so many, as she was probably touched by just as many.

This season is not about getting the newest technology gadget, nor is it about getting the newest gadget for someone you love.  It is about spending quality time with someone you love.  Share your dreams and passions with this special someone, and allow them to share theirs with you.
Whether you are aware of it or not, you touch the lives of everyone you meet.  Why not try to positively touch every life you encounter?
