Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised to anyone.

I admit it…I did not write this. I receive many e-mails each day. This one came from my friend Bonnie. We have known each other since Bonnie was 2 1/2 and I was 4….a very long time.  Even though we have very little contact, Bonnie is someone I care about deeply and could have written this for and about.  I hope you pass this along to all of the important people in your life.  This one’s for you, Bon, and for your wonderful Jimmy!

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, children with bad report cards, dogs with bad hips, family and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it …… because we are worth it..

Some things we keep — like a 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.  We only have one.

We only have one mom, one dad, one unique brother or sister or friend.   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 and family 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 . . . here you go.

Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised to anyone.

This is MeddlingMom….have a wonderful day.
