All the material things we worry so much about really can be gone in the blink of an eye,

The universe is sending us a message to get our priorities right.

It certainly does help to rethink your priorities. I had a big rethink on mine some years ago now due a life changing experience. I have to say I have never regretted my actions since that time.
