Life Doesn't Wait... Neither Does Death

You never know when life is going to throw you a curve.  As I posted last week,  I just got back from a
FABULOUS vacation.  It was so special.  There were spiritual moments, magical moments, and wonderful beach resort moments.  I'm sure I'll be writing more about the trip in future blogs.

When I got back from vacation, I learned that my brother had passed away while I was gone.  Before I left, my brother and I made a lunch date.  He had to cancel because of a previous appointment he had forgotten about.  We talked on the phone.  I told him we'd be sure to get together when I got back.  He told me to take lots of pictures.  But he didn't wait.  We never had that lunch.  He never saw the pictures.

This was a reminder to me that we should all savor the time we have with our loved ones.  You never know when it's going to be the last time you see or talk to them.  Like the old James Taylor song says, "Shower the people you love with love.  Show them the way that you feel.  Things are gonna be much better if you only will."

We're only human, but let's try to keep the words of that song in our hearts and on our minds always.  Let the people you care about know that you care because life doesn't wait... neither does death.

Love,  Paula


  1. I have walked in your shoes. It was and sometimes seems unreal. But I cannot change anything, I just live with the emptiness and try to fill it with positive people and God.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss....
