Something to think about at any age.

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 habits and 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 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 them?

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. And just in case I'm
gone tomorrow.


Like I always say:::

Today's always here, tomorrow never comes and yesterday is
gone forever!
