“If I had known I only had 15 more days with him what would I have done differently?”
This question keeps swirling around in my head. I had no idea what was coming. Last Christmas is so vivid! The tree, the stockings, the smiles and giggles as Wade pretended to eat a pine cone Reagan and I used to decorate the packages. How funny he looked at us for being so excited about the electric skillet we bought him. He always made pancakes for us and we thought this would make it easier for him. I remember my traditional kiss under the mistletoe. (I couldn’t even hang it up this year). As I think about that day one year ago I can’t help but think...I only had 15 more days with him!! (and it hurts!😢)
What if you only had 15 more days with the ones you love? What would you do differently? Would that petty argument be so important? Would that offense be worth keeping? How
much sweeter would you talk? Would you take a long walk and tell them how much you loved them? Would you hug a little tighter tonight? Please do!!
We are not promised tomorrow. We don’t know the day we leave this earth and I just think when we realize that truth it puts everything in its rightful place. You don’t have time to be mad, offended, aggravated, or too busy- Life is too short!!
So, would you make that phone call you’ve been meaning to make? Would you go on that date night that you keep putting off? Would you go ahead and write that letter? Let me ask you...What do you keep putting off?
“whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.”
