I found this in my memories on Facebook and thought it was good enough to repeat in a blog.

This morning as I scrolled through my newsfeed, I hardly even got started when I read three lovingly written posts about those who have lost someone special this day. It made me think about time and life and our use of both.
My eyes have been opened to the frailty of life as I have suffered great loss in my own life. And now working in health care I see how quickly things can change from good to bad with those you’ve been caring for and who you’ve fallen in love with. Death happens to the young and old, and every age in-between. Death has no boundaries. It has no knowledge of time, nor does it care.
Sometimes time is on our side and is necessary to mend relationships or tear down bridges and walls. That’s a fortunate thing, so be grateful. But often, time gets away from us. Where has the time gone? I didn’t have enough time. I need more time. We think time is always going to be there. But time isn’t forever. It isn’t promised forever. Not in this life anyway.
Life is truly a vapor so use your time wisely. Always let those in your life know that you love them. If anything were to happen to you, they will never need to question if you did. Let others know how much you enjoy having them in your life. Live like there’s no tomorrow. Be good and kind while doing that. Mend those fences. And above all, love. ❤️
Be grateful for the time you have. ♥️
