We breathe in an uncertain world. When we leave home in the morning, we assume we will return in the evening. When we say goodbye to loved ones, we take it for granted we will see them again. We presume they know we love them, so maybe we don’t say the words as often as we should. Unfortunately, we fail to consider the mortal reality that this may not be the case…until it’s too late. Tomorrow does not always come.
I have to find things that give me pain and turn them into things that become a pleasure. Never let a sin go by without catching on and saying sorry to the one you hurt. Don’t wait until it is too late. That is wise advice, but I’d like to add that we should also keep short accounts with every person who is in the circle of our lives. We never know when life will be dramatically changed… sometimes lastingly.
Look at the mirror to see the reflection about it. Don’t allow the misgivings of “if only I knew” to be the final marker in your life. Be quick to love. Speed up to be kind. Take the time to make someone feel special. Be quick to forgive and realize in relationships there are two people, don’t hold back.
Freely give hugs and kisses, and may “I love you” be often on your lips.
This post is dedicated to all of the people in my life that I love and hold close in my heart. And to you the only that seizes my heart in a way I never thought possible. Some of you may be aware of some of the quotes; all of them are special, just as all of you are special to me.
If only I knew I would never hear your voice again. I would treasure your every word every intonation in your voice, with all of my heart. If only I knew this was our last hug, I would hold you tight and hope to never let you go. If only I knew this was the last time the very last time I would see you I would take the time to treasure everything about you. If only I knew that disagreements did not mean a lack of love. I would have been hurt less often. If only I knew Tomorrow was not coming I would ask you to forgive me for any wrong I may have done to you. If only I knew this as our final kiss, I would use it to tell you that you are the love of my life. If only I knew I could never share another day with you, I would make the most of every second.
I plan to add more, I hope you enjoy.
