What if you got a phone call saying it was too late?
What if you got a phone calling saying that everything you have known has changed and that your entire life would be turned upside down. And that the rock in your life was no longer there for you to touch, feel, hug and love as you had previously done so.
That phone call would change your life. For the rest of your life, you would answer every phone call with hesitation. You would despise any activity that kept you away from your loved ones longer than an I love you would be remembered. That phone call would force your entire world into such an extreme paradigm shift that it would take months upon months for you to realize what happened. That phone call would take away your breath for months. And the minute you found your breath again is the minute you remembered the phone call. For the rest of your life, that phone call would be the exact reason that you are often and without warning, stopped dead in your track only to find yourself in a moment of utter and indescribable pain and in a world that is moving so fast that no one around you can help.
What if the most important person in your
life was taken away quicker than a breath?
Do you realize that is possible? Do you realize that in the time it took you to read my post, written through my tears, you could have called your loved one to say you appreciate them?
Don’t wait for a phone call to take your breath away. Don’t wait for a phone call to stop you in your tracks and turn your life upside down. Don’t wait for the moment when…it is too late. I am begging you to take my advice and call them. Smother them in your love. When they are gone, you will be glad you did.
Your continued thoughts & prayers are appreciated. In lieu of comments today, stop and shut your eyes. Think of what you would feel like if you got a call saying a loved one is gone. Then, open your eyes and realize you still have time. Take 2 minutes out of your “busy” day to call a loved one and tell them you appreciate them.
