We pretty much take for granted that people and situations are going to be around forever … but of course they aren’t and so many of us have had to deal with thinking about what the last thing we said and did was for someone we love.
We always bargain with time and yet the only time we actually have is this moment. There is no guarantee of anything beyond that.
After losing my husband I think a great deal about the people in my life that I love and I try to be consciously aware of what I say and how I leave them when I have to. I want them always to know how much I love them, and what they mean to me. I make the time to tell people thank you and to let them know I appreciate them. I say the things that come to me to say, because I know that you cannot always do it “next time.”
