I Love You
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 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 or say ” I love you.”
So while we have it, its’ best we love it, care for it, fix it when its’ 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. These 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 its’ your turn to send this to all those people who are ‘keepers’ in your life. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do 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 need rekindling, or most importantly, 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!
And just in case GOD calls me home…please know that
I LOVE YOU!!!
Live today to the fullest because Tomorrow is never promised…
