    I needed this storm to pass through me like a flash flood, reminding me of all that I had lost, while preparing me for all I had yet to gain Sometimes you stumble upon a book that is so heart wrenching yet beautiful that it leaves its mark upon your soul You read and reread it because you love the story, but you love what you learn from the story evenAlaska or Bust is one of those stories My heart absolutely shattered for Tucker and Gracie To have suffered the losses that they did, I I needed this storm to pass through me like a flash flood, reminding me of all that I had lost, while preparing me for all I had yet to gain Sometimes you stumble upon a book that is so heart wrenching yet beautiful that it leaves its mark upon your soul You read and reread it because you love the story, but you love what you learn from the story evenAlaska or Bust is one of those stories My heart absolutely shattered for Tucker and Gracie To have suffered the losses that they did, I wanted to wrap my arms around them and give them the biggest hug But in losing someone we often find something within ourselves Strength, the will to live, and the need to make every moment count Over the last nine months I d come to realize that I no longer wanted to only live for tomorrow I wanted to live in the moment, as if it were a motion picture playing out, making sure to store every frame into my memory, so that I could play it over and over again anytime I wanted I loved experiencing the United States through their eyes I found it delightful and fun that they picked all the quirky places to visit and that they took their time We often get so caught up in the fast pace of life that we miss out on a lot of the little things But don t you know that it s the little things that count and sometimes you need a reminder of that Most importantly, what I learned from Alaska or Bust is that there are no guarantees in life You need to make the most of each moment and not take anyone or anything for granted And that sometimes you just might be getting a little help from above Remember, life is a journey, not a destination Live, laugh, and love
