Just a thought...

I was thinking today about something that might seem a little weird. Regardless, it still popped into my head and so I thought I would share!

I started thinking about funerals and how much is said about the one whom has passed. We tend to say a lot of kind things and bring out the best stories and the best characteristics of that person. Some may spend a lot of time preparing a speech or making sure that day is extra special. Those are all great things. So I'm wondering if those that have lost a loved one or close friend, did you tell that person how much they meant to you or did you share with them how you felt about them when they were still living? It just got me thinking about my friends and family and that I need to be better at sharing with them how I feel about them now while they are still living!

Boy, do I know that feeling. Especially after Joe's funeral was yesterday. I have made a promise to never let a day go by without telling one person (other than my hubby and son) that I love them. Life is too hard-we need to tell more people we love them. I don't think we can say it enough.

My, what good thoughts, Lori.You know, I don't do it enough--tell my loved ones how I feel about them. I am so glad you brought this up, because it really has set me to thinking about it too. Thanks.
Those are great pictures of Nico on your last post, btw. I haven't been to see you in a couple of days and missed them. Enjoy your family!

Thanks for the reminder Lori. It is so true. That is why in my house we also give kisses and hugs and say I love you when we leave the house.

Lori, I have missed so much on your blog this past week...I'm so sorry. Happy belated birthday to Joel and Happy belated Easter!

Thank you so much for all of your kind comments on my blog. You have really helped me get through this yucky time. I couldn't do any of this without my blog buddies!

An eye opener... there was a 10 year old boy who died in our area on EASTER day... a dirt bike accident. Now if that does not make you call all your loved ones, I don't know what will! NONE of us are may see tomorrow, lets not deal with another guilt issue from satan and celebrate our loved ones TODAY!
AND fyi... ya all better celebrate when I am gone... cause I am living life for Jesus here, and I can't wait to see Him in Heaven! I will be dancing, you should to!

Your comment hits home with a lot of people. As my brother was dying of cancer i thought about how much i truely love(d) him and how many times i did not say it. It wasn't too late,,, but I sure wish i woulda said it more. Every day before we go anywhere, I Love You is said at our house... and meant. If at anytime he calls us in, our family will know... they are loved. I hope all of our friends know it too...even though it is not said out loud. Love Ya ! Shelly B..
