What can we learn from the lost of our love one? What insight does the lost of our love one gives us? What about living in the NOW. What about praising in the NOW. What about saying those things that when one falls deep into a sleep can no longer hear you. (Eccl 9:5). What about the hugs and kisses and beautiful thoughts of that person being express to them now while they can hear it.
How often do we hear - "just one more day" or "just one more hour" or "just one more hug." All expressions of regrets. Regret, of not loving the person to one's full capacity while they were alive. Not giving them the attention needed while they were still alive.
The inevitability of death should increase our understanding of how precious and short life can be for some of us. So, to the degree of your love toward those you love - express it now......so that when the end of the road arrives...you will be filled with many days of joyful memories!
