Our duty to live every day with joy

Watched a friend and colleague, Jake, who is on life support, be baptized today. He is the Houston Chronicle photographer who shot more than 800 images of my #YearOfJoy Holiday Ice Skating Party and gave them all to me. I think he enjoyed the party as much as the children. There are no words to describe the feeling of seeing someone near death, but in that moment, it becomes very clear that life is precious, and it's our duty to live every day with joy. #yearofjoy
