No Regrets

Some relatives of mine recently got together for a visit.  They practically live on opposite sides of the country.  They had a really nice visit and when it was time to say goodbye, they got choked up... they cried.  The realization hit them that they might never see each other again.

After the story was relayed to me, it made me stop and think.  When people live a great distance apart, it's obvious that you may never see them again.  But what about the people that live close by?  What about the people that live with you?

People get in automobile accidents.  People have heart attacks and strokes.  There are random shootings.  There are fires.  There are all kinds of natural disasters.  My point is, you never know when it's going to be the last time you are going to see or talk to a friend or a loved one.  It seems we take so much for granted.  There's never any guarantee.

Let's try to stop taking so much for granted.  Let's savour our time with friends and loved ones.  Let's appreciate the time we have together.  Let's let them know - I mean REALLY KNOW - how much we care about them.  Let's not be afraid to tell the people we love that we love them.  Let's try to live with no regrets.

Love, Paula
