One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't anymore. No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute." Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say "I love you." So while we have it, it's best we love it, care for it, fix it when it's broken and heal it when it's sick. This is true for marriage ... and old cars . and children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it. Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a classmate we grew up with. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what. Life is important, like people we know who are special. and so, We keep them close! I received this from someone who thought I was a 'keeper'! Then I sent it to the people I think of in the same way. Now it's your turn to send this to all those people who are "keepers" in your life. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them? I was thinking...I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said. Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do. Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised. I always tell my friends and family I love them...probably too much, if there is any such thing. I loved the message in this email that I received and I'm all about sharing a great message. Personally, I'm very expressive that way but I realize a lot of people are not and I'd hate to be one of those people feeling regret for not having expressed my love every chance I had to! This is especially for those people!!!

Like you I do try to tell those that I love that I do as often as I can. I just recenlty sent one of my close friends that I met at work a card telling her how much I love her and how wonderful she is. It's so good to do these things because you don't ever know when you're going to die. I think it's especially important to let your spouse or significant other know how much you not only love but appericate everything they do for you because it helps keep your relationship strong. Thank you for sharing this and thank you for being a wonderful friend and listener.
