Love While You Can

When the person you love is gone, what will be the last words you said to them. Will they be words of love and friendship? Or will they come from that brief moment of anger that can never be taken back?

Our time here is limited. Life in unpredictable. Don't let life get in the way of living.

Every hello should be as awe inspiring as the very first and every farewell should be as heartfelt as your last.

Some things can never be taken back. Don't let anger or hurt cause you to cut the one you love so deeply that your own heart will bleed as well.

Love with passion, depth, and honesty always. And when your love is gone, take comfort knowing that no hello or farewell was a wasted one.

Loss is part of life. But, thank god so is love!

Just some thoughts of mine inspired by a few blogs I read today.

Ever since the attacks of 911 I have made it a point to treat every goodbye as the last one I might get. That tragedy reminded me that you never know what tommorrow may bring.

Whoa, those must have been some blogs....Ready

They were. There are some people going through some really rough times on here right now. Too often people say, I wish he/she knew how I felt or think of all the things they could have said after that person is gone.

One blog in particular really touched me. It was the epitome of everything I just wrote... very inspiring.

I guess all we can hope Mari, is that we leave on good terms.

Memories can haunt forever.

Good memories can keep us company forever though too. It doesn't always work out that way though.

"Parting is such sweet sorrow." My last one before my current was as beautiful of an ending as possible. It's painfully sad, but... at least the memories will still bring smiles.

It seems that too often we tend to define entire relationships based on how they end. Its good that you had your beautiful ending and can carry the happy memories with you. Sometimes thats the best we can hope for.

Wise words Mari! They hit me all to closely definitely somethings I would change in my last farewell. Like perhaps saying something...can't take it back or change the past though.


rm_MariGrrl replies on 6/21/2006 1:13 pm:
I have a few farewells that didn't go so well. I try not to dwell on the past though. Its just sad that something that starts out so good can often end so poorly.

rm_MariGrrl replies on 6/21/2006 1:15 pm:
I try to do the same thing. Especially with my children. I don't want them to ever be left wondering if I loved them with anything less than all my heart. I never had the hugs and "I love you"s as a kid. So, I make sure they are given all the love I have to offer.

Those words are absolutely someone who , at one point in my life , let my sense of pride cause me to rip into someone, and caused them undo pain. The worst part is that they suddenly had a medical emergency which proved to be fatal, i was not able to apologize for, or take back, the hurtful things I said.I regret this everyday.

rm_MariGrrl replies on 6/21/2006 1:17 pm:
Pride is a dangerous thing. I let my pride get in the way in the past as well. All we can do is learn from it and try not to hold on to regret.

I am definately a believer in leaving on good terms, well most of the time. I'm sure I could think of one ending that didn't go so well.

You should never burn bridges or leave someone without letting them know how much you really care. If our feelings are clouded by outside forces, then our last goodbyes may not end up the way we may intend. Nobody wants to be remembered or remember someone they were with in a bad way, deep down we all want to harbor good memories.

I will make it a personal goal to not leave those that I care about without being sure that they know exactly how much they are loved and appreciated.

You touch so many people on here with your words mari...You truly have a beautiful heart.

Take Care.

Thank you,

Life is too short to let bitterness take hold. Hubby #1 did that and he's had a pretty miserable life ever since. I use him as my example on how not to live my life.
