Everything falls away

Today I got a blood-chilling text message. For privacy reasons, I can’t get into its details. 

What I can say is that, in the moment of seeing such a message, everything superfluous falls away inside. Even if the outside world demands interaction, that’s all done on auto-pilot. 

Heart, mind, soul, all turn toward what’s most important: each other.
All’s well, happily, but I have a favor to ask of you. Please call or text someone you love right now just to let them know how much you love them. I’d be so grateful.

    I am glad that all is well. We are always only a heart-beat away from disaster, and telling people we love them is never, ever wasted.

      That was exactly what hit me: the recognition of no guarantees. I usually understand there are no guarantees, but it’s a pale understanding compared to what I felt a few days ago.

    Glad to hear all turned out well.

    I was at the park yesterday, watching Carter play on the playground. There were several families there as well, ringing the playground area. An elderly man came up to the bench next to mine to speak with the lady there. She asked him if so-and-so was tired to which he responded, “No, but I am tired.” I don’t know why, but that admission of tiredness brought tears to my eyes as it reminded me of my dad. And I thought, how lucky they all were to be there, together, simply sitting at the park watching the kids. And I thought how much I wanted my dad to have that experience, that time. Sigh.

    Each other – the most important thing.

    This is so important! Life is too short, we never know what might happen next. It is very, VERY important to let our loved ones know how much we care, while we still can.
