Well today was the day that we said our last goodbyes to my sister in law Lori. It was a very nice service done by our pastor from Journey Church Joe Darago. Several members of the family got up and spoke as did some of Loris friends. It was hard at times to hold back the tears. Joe had several good points and some questions for us to ask ourselves as we left the funeral and went about the rest of our day. One of the more interesting questions asked was if you were to die today, would those who you love and are important to you know exactly how you feel about them. I would have to say yes and no to that. I tell Debbie and the kids on a daily basis that I love them. The rest of my family, not so much. My friends? Do I tell them how much I appreciate them and how lucky I am to have them in my life? Every so often but not as much as I should. THats something in these next few weeks I want to try really hard to work on. Because you just never kow when God is going to call you home.
Give those special people in your life and extra hug and tell them what they mean to you!
