Why Am I Waiting?
I was grieving the death of a close friend, and it was REALLY hard.
My friend, Kim, was a wonderful mom with three little kids who would feel the pain of their loss for the rest of their lives. Her death made me ask some tough questions about my own life, because although I know I’ll die someday, I tend to live like I have forever. But I don’t.
It made me ask what are some things I’d want to do if I were diagnosed with a terminal illness? Would I write letters to my husband and kids telling them how I feel about them or make videos for their graduation and wedding days? Would I just want to spend every moment with them that I possibly could?
It’s not easy to think about things like this 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.
