Always Say I Love You

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Yesterday's mail brought me, yet again, a reminder that you should never delay letting someone know you care about them.
I mailed a birthday card to a dear woman I met a few years ago when hubby and I were delivering for Meals On Wheels in Juneau, AK. She would have been 95 on August 28. I did not see her or her daughter when I was in Juneau last month because I got too busy.
Margaret died on August 12. I was in Juneau and could have seen her and given support to her daughter Helen if I had just made the time. Last year I took the time (30 - 45 minutes) to stop by and it was wonderful chatting and catching up with them. I know they enjoyed the visit as much as I did.
I won't beat myself up over it, but I will always know that I did not give all I could have for them. They are wonderful folk and I will miss Margaret's sweet face next year when I visit her daughter on my trip to Juneau.
There is one photo in my scrapbook of me with Margaret and Helen. I will always remember Margaret as I see her there. She was full of P&V, even at 93. You can see the twinkle in her eye! She will be there in heaven when I go and I know she will be as welcoming then as she always was here on earth.
I love you Margaret. Hugs *S*

    It's always sad to lose a friend but we can't beat ourselves up because we missed an opportunity. We've all been there. Just continue to remember the relationship you had and look forward to seeing the daughter next year.

    Love that expression "P & V"...my Mom says that all the time. I am sure Margaret enjoyed the fact that you sent her a card anyway. emoticon
    You live in a wonderful spot in MO. I use to live in Joplin and went to Branson and Silver dollar city as a Tween. I married a SC boy and doubt I'll ever live outside of the SC state line again.
