It Feels Good Not to Wait



Why wait? There’s so much we may want to say and do, and we may think we have all the time in the world. The reality is, we're not guaranteed tomorrow.

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.
