How many times have you said to a friend "We've got to hang out" or "We've got to catch up" maybe "Let's get together". Too many times, right? I know I've been guilty of it. The desire is there, the friendship is definitely there, but we don't take it a step further and make it a priority. Something always comes up and you think "Oh, next week will work" or "Hey, I'll catch ya next month" maybe "We'll get together soon". And nothing happens.
Then it's a month, 6 months, a year. Time. It flies. It flies at the speed of light. We all have busy jobs, busy lives, the best of intentions but sometimes our friends take backseat to our day-to-day lives.
Recently some close friends lost a very special friend at a much too early age. His absence has left and will leave gaps in the fabric of the lives of his loved ones, both friends and family. Gone in an instant. It seems impossible. Incomprehensible. And you're left with the memories, the stories, the pictures.
Life is short. Let's please not take it and each other for granted. I just Tweeted to a friend that we needed to get together soon. Then I thought about that friend. Her darling baby boy. Her equally darling husband. As soon as I post this, Tweet this, Facebook this, I'm contacting her. I'm setting a Date. A Time. I miss my friend. I love my friend. I want to see her this week. And I'll do everything in my power to make that work.
Going forward, I'll be acting like it's my last day on Earth. Cause you never know when it might turn out to be true. So I want to be prepared.
My new motto " Life is short. Love more. Live more. Hug more. Kiss more. Facebook more. Twitter more. Connect more xo ♥ "
