Life has a way showing you how important relationships are. A few weeks ago a dear friend of our family passed away. So my world has been reeling with so many thoughts, emotions, tears and memories. My first reaction to the news was exactly what you are thinking, why! This young man packed so very much into his short life. He had the smile that would light up a room and then there was his laugh. Oh my word His Laugh!
The days fly bye as we all know they do and we get so wrapped up in our day to day life that we forget the things that matter. Our Family and our friends are what matter more than anything else in this world. If you get that hunch in your gut to call someone you haven’t talked to in a long time, CALL THEM.! Go See Them! Touch base in whatever way is necessary.
I have an example of following your gut. A few weeks ago I was leaving work and was going past a care facility down the road from there and my gut was screaming hard core to stop and visit an uncle who lives there. He did not remember me at first but after a few minutes he did and it was so wonderful talking to him .
Like I have said life can change in an instant. Do not take anyone in your life for granted. Make that call, do something so you live with no regrets. With the passing of our dear family friend I for one have been thinking about life and how short it is. Don’t waste a moment of it!
