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 marriage ... 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 classmate we grew up
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 the
people I think of in the same way. Now it's your turn to send this to all those
people who are "keepers" in your life, including the person who sent it if you feel
that way. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love
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.
Let everyone 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.
Live today to the fullest because
tomorrow is not promised.
