My uncle sent me a version of this heartfelt message a few minutes ago. Yep, it made me look. Made me think about some amends that I can fine tune in my life. What about you? That friend that calls you more often than you call them, not saying I love you to those that don’t hear it enough (its never enough), and just not simply sharing yourself with others. You never know who needs a hug or a hello or who may benefit from your kind words… from your spoken word or poetry. Don’t hide love. Read. Read and Share. Read, Share and take Action.
I don’t know who the author is but if anyone can shed some light on the origins of this message, please let me know. However, I found this version on the internet by doing a Google search.
“Life is important, Love is important, Tomorrow is
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, and 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 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 close friend 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 and family 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,
relationships that needed rekindling, those 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 I’m gone tomorrow….
I LOVE YOU !!
Live today because tomorrow is not promised …”
