You have heard the question "What would you do if you had one day left?'
How about one week?
What if you knew with certainty that you had five years left.
What would you do differently.
I was thinking about this..and thought..
well, what would I do If I had one hour left
(or course I thought this on the way to the gym)
I thought...I sure wouldn't be headed to the gym...but since that whole hour left thing wasn't a certainty, thought I would go get my workout in..
If I had one hour left..
I would go home...and sit with my kids and hold them and tell them I love them.
I would tell them what I personally think is the most important thing in life
faith in God.
never quit or give up on your dreams.
Then I would tell my husband how much I loved him.
What a difference he has made for me.
call my family and do the same.
This is why, when bad things happen....people will scrawl in blood their last words to friends and family.
It's that important...because we don't say it every day.
because we assume we have more than one day....
that we won't be grocery shopping...or going to school...or doing our errands and have a tsunami come and strip our family out from under us...
or have a car cross the median and kill our loved ones.
or a tornado smash our house to pieces.
We can't live that way all the time...we'd be wrecks.
But we don't have to...
just for today....call the people you love and tell them what they mean to you.
I have no idea what brought this one...
I was just thinking of it...it's probably the news.
I know one thing for sure.
I am glad I decided a year and some odd months ago to get better.
If I hadn't I would still be fat and miserable...not taking hold of every part of my life and living.
I was explaining to my oldest daughter that we all die. She wanted to know what was the point of living if you didn't accomplish what you set out to do...
I said "What is the point of living if you don't enjoy life before you accomplish everything?
I said..You could NOT be here.
every day is a chance to experience things....the things we accomplish are important...
but living each day as if it's your last day...is the best thing you can do with the gift God gave you.
Yes. strive towards your goals..
But remember to live today.
Have a great night.
