If Tomorrow Never Comes....

This was sent to me from a mafia family member was posted by a mafia person...I wonder if they know what this feels like or can relate ..i can losing a spouse is terrible. Don't get me wrong losing a parent is terrible too but the one person you expect to spend special moments with, children with, i love yous or just a cuddle or hug..gone in a heart beat without any warning. You have the greatest day ever, you leave for work only to come home to find your best friend, lover, spouse, your world dead. Its will 13 years this July my husband died, most days lately it haunts me and still feels like yesterday. So many take love for granted and just go through life dating here and there. I have been in love with 2 men my whole life, one died on me and the other well, let me just say I wish him nothing but all the be happiness and love in the world as well hope is healthy and doing great.

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, 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, 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?

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 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 I'm gone tomorrow.

LOVE MY FAMILY AND MY "REAL" FRIENDS EVEN THOSE I NO LONGER SPEAK TO! You will always be in my heart, soul and mind.

Live today because tomorrow is not promised.
