I don't know who wrote this or where it originally came from, but here is the email:
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 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!
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 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.
Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised.
