If I was dying…

There is great power in words. We know what it feels like to have a harsh word spoken to us with sarcasm or in anger. It cuts like a knife and leaves a scar forever embedded in our heart. Our mind marks it unforgettable.

Knowing how words have the ability to leave a lasting impression, how often do we choose words to lift rather than wound?

If I was dying, what would you share with me, and why? Would you be more mindful and cautious with your choice of words? Would your presentation be sweeter, kinder?

If I was dying, would you tell me you love me…and perhaps, more often? Would you fill my heart with daisies instead of scars? If so, what changed between us that you should treat me differently now?

Why do we hesitate to lift someone? What are we waiting for?

Today, give someone something wonderful to etch as unforgettable in their mind, and fill their heart with daisies. ♥️

  1. Your thoughts are so true. And another thing. Why wait until someone has died before saying how wonderful they are. So often I hear beautiful eulogies and wonder why we can’t do this when the person is alive to hear them.

  2. Fill their hearts with daisies…That made me think of “You’ve Got Mail” when Tom Hanks gave Meg Ryan daisies and started the change in their relationship. He started giving her hints, and she started wondering if he was her secret love..Loved that show. Words…and DAISIES both are apparently powerful!

    1. Ha! I love that movie too. 😊 I had thought about using roses in my post but I changed it to daisies. It seemed more fitting to me. Thanks for reminding me of that part in the movie. I had forgotten it. Such a good movie!

    1. Wow! Well, thank you! 💕 And yes, we are all dying. I actually had that in my post and deleted before the final draft. But thank you so much for your kind words. Made my day. 💕
