NOW is the time to DO IT!

Thursday, October 24, 2013

Do What? Anything and Everything that you have been putting off.

I subscribed to the obituaries to a funeral home in a small town I was born in. Sounds odd, but I had grandparents I was very close to and they know everyone is this town and I have such fond memories of my grandparents and their friends. I lost my grandparents at a young age. There were only in their 50s and 60s. Today I got notification that my Grandpa's best friend just joined him in Heaven. I have old photos and videos of this man taking care of me when I was a baby, toddler and so on. He was my favorite.

So what did I put off? About five years ago (at my uncle's funeral), I was invited to this man's house by his wife. She was so excited to see me. I told her I would come over. Got her name and phone number. Time went by and somehow I had forgotten until today. I really wish I would have went just to hear his stories. Now it's too late. I will go to the funeral and hopefully see some familiar faces. I really want to go to apologize to his wife for not keeping my promise. She said to me........"Carmen, please come soon, before it's too late." I never thought It'd be too late at that time.

Feeling awful and sad.

  Well, Carmen, you have given everyone on this site a very important message!

You can give this widow a special gift, not only by listening to her stories, but also by sharing with her your very fond memories of this kind man. It will be great comfort to her. My sincere sympathy to you.

You are so sweet to have that remorse. It's so true, none of us know how many days we have left, let's act in such a way that we have no regrets.

    Remember that there is a BIG difference between making a DECISION and making a COMMITMENT! God Bless YOU! Vic.
