How do you confront your mortality?

We will all die, that is not the question.  The questions lie in how you live your life, and how long you have to enjoy it once you figure it out. 
My Mom is a breast cancer survivor, 10 years cancer free.  Her life now, after, is so similar to her life before... still married to my dad, they still (or maybe even more) hold hands and love.  They have love, so deep.  And yes, they fuss, nag, hug, make tea for each other.
This morning David woke up to give me a kiss and some pretty important words before I left this morning.  There is a lot of power in 'I love you.'
