What if there isn't "anymore"?

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", or 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, 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

Life is important, like people we know who are special.. And so, we keep
them close!

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?

Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they
don't love you back. And just in case I'm gone tomorrow:


Live today because tomorrow is not promised.
