Uncertainty of life

Life is mostly like a smooth sailing ride on the friendly ocean waves until the day nature decides to vent her fury against you. One experiences that severe jolt which leaves you shaken enough to take that solemn vow of never taking things for granted again.

Friday afternoon was one such day which left me dumbfounded. As I logged on to a popular networking site, I saw a condolence message written on a friend’s wall. He was usually active with his updates. That statement took me by shock as I learnt of his sudden demise the previous night in a car accident in Delhi. He was recently blessed with a second bundle of joy in his life.

You follow a person's regular updates only to learn one fine day that there will be no more of them. Such is the uncertainty of life.

RIP dear friend. May God bless your soul. Amen.

That must have been really shocking. I know, the meaning of taking tings for granted. It is only when these very things are no longer easily available to us do we realize that we should cherish every minute of our lives in this world.
It is so easy to fight over small matters, instead of letting it go. I have been there, and so I know it very well.
