In Case I'm Gone

One day a man's wife died, and on that clear, cold
morning in the warmth of their bedroom, the husband was
struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there
isn't any more.
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, children with bad report
cards, 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 sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some
things that make us happy, no matter what.
Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your
friends know you love them?
It's so very important to let every one of your friends
know you love them, even if you think they don't love
you back.
For one day we will all be gone.
