It has been a sad week for my family.
My uncle passed away a few days ago.
Some of his last words were about
how things shouldn't be the way the are..
He was sad that this was the reason people were
finally coming to see him.
He was partially right, but I told him it was a good thing,
(even though, yes, it was sad that this is what brought us all together) and that we were indeed there at that moment for him.
I hope this gave him some comfort.
He was like a gentle giant...and his
soft heart was shining through in the end.
It makes me sad to write this..but I am doing it to remind me, and hopefully others, of how precious our families and friends are..and that we only have here and now to show them that we care.
There is never a promise of tomorrow..only today. While it may sound like a negative thought, I truly believe it is a wise and positive thought...so much good come of following that sentence.
There are times I have not done this, and it has not helped anyone only hurt others, and myself.
Yes, we are humans,
we are fallible...
But given the title of this post....the thought gives us reason to contemplate it's value.
So why shouldn't we live accordingly?
