I've been it's my turn to tag some blogging buddies!

Jamie over at tagged me to do an intriguing and thought provoking meme. Oftentimes, tags can get a bit repetitive, but I found this one to be a bit different.The Meme originated over an idea that was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure. It's a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words.His words were- For Sale: baby shoes, never worn. Here are the rules:1. Write your own six word memoir.2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.4 .Tag five more blogs with links.5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!
Well i'm not good at these things...but since JAMIE tagged me...i better go ahead and do it! LOL!

SO my six word memoir would be:
Live everyday like it's your last

I've always loved these words because you just never know what tomorrow may bring or the big guy upstairs has planned for you. You have to hold, hug, love, kiss and TELL your children and family you love them ALL the time. I am from a family(parents and one sister) that never said "i love you"...they still really don't. When they did it was because something really bad happened...a big fight or family drama, or someone died, etc. I don't live my life like's taught me to not be afraid to tell my children i love them...hug them and kiss them as much as i can! I think everyone should do the same.

Now i'm tagging:

I am tagging:
1. courtney
2. Carrie
3. Katie
4. alyssa
5. Lisa

If I didn't tag you, don't despair, you can still participate! just copy and paste this post and include it on your own blog to initiate your own string of the game.
