Someone sent this to me a while back, and I thought it was a reminder to all of you who have given up: "One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't "anymore". No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute." Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say"I love you."
So while we have it, it's best we love it, care for it, fix it when it's broken and heal it when it's sick. This is true for any relationship......And old cars... And children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.
Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.
Life is important, like people we know who are special.. And so, we keep them close!
When I got this letter, I realized how much sense it made and a 'keeper'!
Then I sent it to the people I think of in the same way... Now it's your turn to share this post with all those people who are "keepers" in your life.
Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them? Do they realize how special you are to them? That you were not just a passing in their lives? How can you ever take back all the hurt and pain you may have inflicted on one person? YOU CAN'T. But you can find the time to let those people know they are special.
I was thinking...I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said, what exactly would I say?
Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do. And just in case I'm gone tomorrow.
I LOVE YA!!!
Live today because tomorrow is not promised.. "
