We all face an inevitable end. It's one thing we all have in common whether
we are white, black, brown, yellow, good, evil or other. There is not a soul
on this earth that has the ability to change it, predict it or plan it....we
must take whatever is handed to us.
Some people are given a gift...the gift of time. They have the opportunity to say their final good-byes, make arrangements and tie up loose ends... but there is always an element of suffering as payment for the gift.
Selfishly, I cherish the moments spent with loved ones who were given the gift; the opportunity to tell them how much I love them and how much they've meant to me.
But as smart as we humans like to believe we are, why do we wait until the end to tell
people how we feel?
The gift is never a guarantee. Some people fade away quickly; their lives snuffed out in a matter of mere moments.
The people you love and care about...tell them, don't wait.
