Got this email that is truly worth sharing. Take it from someone who knows this first hand!
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,
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,
family 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.
Life is important.
We only have one.
We only have one mom, one dad,
one unique brother or sister or friend.
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 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, friendships that needed rekindling
or 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 GOD calls me home …. . .
I LOVE YA ! 🙂
Live today to the fullest

Pastor Susan, as I opened your blog today it’s as if someone was knocking on the door to my heart, I looked out the window and saw you standing there with a plate full of goodies..I opened the door and you came in with the biggest greeting and a heart full of love! I love you very much and I am very blessed the Lord has put you in my path. You have taught me so much in bible study and even though you say its a lot of reading I know you have the annointing to teach us women!! Thank you for your morning greeting!!
my grandpa just died. I brought him a Sunday dinner 4 weeks ago and when I walked in, he was fixing the kitchen faucet! He is over 90 yrs old. and that week his dr called and said to go to the hospital, his kidneys were shutting down… and fri 3/19 he died at 11:40pm. my grandpa accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior, so that is my comfort. but I miss my grandpa dearly. he had a full military honor funeral, we just buried him yesterday. He taught us so much about how to live life right/according to Jesus, and always made us laugh with his jokes.
TQO, I’m so so sorry to hear this. I’m sure you are comforted in the fact that he knows who his Savior is and one day you’ll see him again but the pain is real right now. I wish I could send a big hug your way! This is such a stab in my heart honestly. My godfather who has been like a father to me has just been sent home from the hospital as his kidneys are shutting down. He’s 84. I covet your prayers as you will be in mine.
Thank you TLC for your compassion and prayers, I appreciate you, and will be praying for you and your godfather
Beautiful message. Thank you for posting this!
