From the Author
Most of us live each day the same as the last because we are certain there will always be a tomorrow. There has to be, we have plans and things that still need to be accomplished. It wasn't until I was told my tomorrows could be limited that life and all that is truly important came into focus.
After contracting cancer at a relatively young age, my world was turned upside down and I finally realized that tomorrow will not always be there and that today is a once in a lifetime event, a miracle.
I soon learned that how we perceive our world actually changes our world. I relearned the art of appreciation, that being kind is a choice, and doing something good for another is an opportunity, not a sacrifice. I learned that bills are nothing more than numbers on a piece of paper, but love; love is real and something we often take for granted. That too many times we let our priorities get turned around and forget what is truly important in life. As you will see in my book, I learned this and much, much more.

The message that Michael gives to us is that you can never give up and no matter how bad things may seem in your own life, it can always be worse.
He reminds us not to take people, things and time for granted. We get caught up in our everyday routines that we forget to appreciate all the beauty around us.
I highly recommend this book to everybody because sometimes we need to be reminded on what a precious gift our life is.
