This morning has started with two very sad news. Two women I know have lost their husbands – absolutely unexpectedly. One is young and has 3 little kids. The other one is in her late 50’s and it was just two of them for many years. I wasn’t too close with any of them, but close enough to imagine how their lives will be affected.
When things like this happen, it always strikes me how we mostly never think how good we have it until we don’t. How most of the things don’t even matter in a big picture as long as you can hold the hand of the one you love. How fights and disagreements are a waste of time you can otherwise spend enjoying your loved one being around.
I know it sounds terribly cliche, but just for a second pause and think how blessed you are to have this person in your life. Go hug them. Tell that you love them. Tell them how much they mean to you.
