…and to hug those you love and care about.
A very very dear friend of mine was in a head on collision yesterday. She and her kids were in the truck on their way home when they were hit head on. She is in the hospital tonight awaiting surgery for her ankle, her kids are bruised and sore, but most importantly they are all alive.
After all that has happened this year, the loss of my Grandparents, the injuries, accidents, and close calls… I know now that it is so very important to let those we love and care about know just how much they mean to us.
I grew up listening to Garth Brooks’ “If Tomorrow Never Comes” and this verse has always stuck with me:
‘Cause I’ve lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
I have many wishes about my grandparents, that I had gotten closer to them while they were still alive. I have wishes about friends I was once close to, and many other relationships and might have beens. But I know that all I can do is take these experiences and live my life better. I do not wish to live with regrets.
