I Love Me Some You, Opportunity

You are loved

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,friends,family 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 sister/brother-in-law after divorce.

There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.

Life is important. We only have one, so we must live it to the fullest.

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 repairing/rekindling or three words needing to be said.

Let every one of your friends and family 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.

And just in case I don’t see tomorrow…

I LOVE YA !

About carpebootium

I am a modern-day pirate. I travel the world and trade in today's currency, information. I sail through opportunity, comedy, history and strategy to turn turbulent into tournament, chaotic into cathartic, and embarrassing into emboldening. There are none who should fear me save two: Those who have what I want and those who get in my way. Are you done sailing your calm waters with strong undertow? Have you your fill of empty treasure and oasis destinations? Well good...come and join my crew! We're a lively lot from all over the world but be forewarned...anyone attempting to drop anchor will be thrown overboard, shot, harpooned and then marooned on an isle of cannibals. We move on! If you are ready...welcome aboard the Carpe Bootium!
