Love like There is no Tomorrow!
Eight years ago, a friend got up as usual, took her shower, and then sat on the side of her bed. She told her husband, “I am feeling light headed.” She took two deep breaths and fell over, dead.
There was no time for her to call her daughter. There was no last kiss for her grandchildren. There was not even enough time to tell her husband goodbye, despite the fact that he was in the same room.
It seems every day in the news I hear of someone who just suddenly left this life, with no prior warning, no previous awareness. People who got up, thinking it would be “just another day,” but who never made it back to their same bed at night.
Such deaths always make me remember how precious this moment is. I suppose that is why I love sending cards to friends, picking up the phone to remind people that I love them, and finding other ways to let people know how much I appreciate their presence in my life. Aside from those of us who are very psychic, and oftentimes including them, we do not know which day will be our last.
Whether we stay in this physical experience for 100 more years or we leave today, it will all be but a wink of an eye when we return to Spirit.
I am renewed in my commitment to love today like there is no tomorrow.
What if we all made the same choice?
WOW! Can you even imagine the possibilities?
I will leave you to consider these words from Henri F. Amiel: “Life is short and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who are travelling the dark way with us. Oh, be swift to love. Make haste to be kind!”
