My friend Ellen just suffered a major stroke. As she fights for her life, her husband writes these important words in a Facebook post:
“No news just some ramblings. Ellen and I have been married almost 30 years. While that may seem long by some standards, the thing I’ve learned in the last two days is that 30 years in not long enough, Another 30 years wouldn’t be long enough. While we love love each other deeply I wish I had packed more hugs, kisses and loving into those years. I should have been trying to get 30 years worth of loving into those years.
So as you read this, if your are anywhere near someone you love, go give them a hug and a kiss like you haven’t done in a long time. Make it a priority to double up on hugging, loving and kissing. You will never regret doing it. The only downside it that it will still never be enough.”
Bottom line: Love the people you love. NOW!
