One day a woman’s husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth ofÂ their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes thereÂ isn’t anymore. No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no moreÂ 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 toÂ 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 andÂ heal it when it’s sick. This is true for marriage … and old cars ..and childrenÂ with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents.Â 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 classmate we grew upÂ with. 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!
I received this from someone who thought I was a ‘keeper’…Then I sent it to theÂ people I think of in the same way. Now it’s your turn to send this to all thoseÂ people who are “keepers” in your life, including the person who sent it if you feelÂ that way. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you loveÂ them?
I was thinking…I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I hadÂ any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling, or three wordsÂ needing to be said.
Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don’t loveÂ you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do.
Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised.
