Default Be Thankful

Enjoy your family, friends and boat. Step or no step, beak or no beak, platform or not, cat or vee, pad or no pad etc. etc. Just buried a friend and fellow boater today after a long battle with Leukemia. Be thankful for your health and enjoy each day.

Sorry for your loss, I know how things like this make yoyu think.
In Sept 2000 I buried my wife Sasha, she was only 32 and stunning. I went home after the funeral and looked at all the things she accumulated over four years and it hit me, what good was it all? you dont take it with you and he who dies with the most toys is the biggest pile of crap I ever heard. I hug my daughter everyday and even when my business gets annoying I thank god I'm annoyed over something I own and have and not because I'm starving.
The saying " You never realize what you have till its gone" is so true.
I count my blessings everyday and try to enjoy every minute of my life because it goes by quick.

Sorry for your loss!

Hits home here I have been battling Leukemia since 2005 and am recovering from a bone marrow transplant a year and a half ago. I had to get rid of the Cig (Thanks again OSO) and miss it dearly but I have bought a little 17 foot fixer upper to help pass the time and can not belive how much that little boat means to me, it is worth less that the props on the Cig but I got to go out on my boat twice last year and am very thankfull for that.
