Last night I went to a wake of a good friend’s daughter. My friend passed away on March 14. Her daughter buried her on March 23(which was the daughter 40th birthday). On March 26, three days later the daughter had a massive stroke and died on March 29. At the wake last night, some people got up and spoke and tried to make amends with the person in the casket, by giving their belated happy birthday, shout outs, introducing the family to the deceased next of kin…one thing for sure the dead can’t hear you when they are dead and gone…family and friends must give their accolades and praises while the person is living…. One thing for sure
Family isn’t always blood, it can be the good friends who reached out to you while you were alive. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs, the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what, while you are living. So be thankful for what you have and for the people God has placed in your life. The ones that reach out to you and share the love and the ones you need to reach out to, to share some love. Don’t wait until its too late to tell someone how much you love them and how much you care about them. Because when they’re gone, no matter how loud you shout and cry, they wont hear you anymore.Reach out and Touch Someone today, because you never know today might be the last time you can reach out.
