Yesterday was a one year anniversary for a friend of mine. This was not a happy remembrance, but the sad and difficult anniversary of the deaths of her husband and son. (My post about it from a year ago ~ But God)
I mention this because I think we all need to be reminded of how fragile life is and how we need to enjoy the time we have with the ones we love. It’s important to stay current with “I love you’s” and “I’m sorry’s.” Don’t let the passing days fool you into thinking that you have endless opportunities to bless your sweetie. Today is the moment we have. Put it to good use.
(On a more practical note, do keep your paperwork current, so that a surviving spouse is cared for, not left with a mess. Being Generous to the End)
Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness. James Thurber
