It Feels Good Not to Wait
I was grieving the loss of a friend and it was really hard. Hi, I’m Renee Swope with Proverbs 31 Ministries.
My friend Kim was an amazing mom with three young kids. Her death made me take a look at my own life. Although I know I’ll die one day, I tend to live like I have forever. But I don’t.
So what would I want to do if I were diagnosed with a terminal illness? I know I’d write letters to my husband and kids telling them how I feel about them. And I’m sure I’d make videos for their graduation or wedding days.
It’s easy not to think about when I don’t have a life-threatening illness. But, why wait? There’s so much I want to say and do, and, the reality is, I’m not guaranteed tomorrow.
So, this week I decided to write a note to each of my kids and my husband telling them how much they mean to me. It felt so good not to wait.
