Good Morning Friends,
Last night, we had family night for my Uncle Tuff from 6-8pm. I’m so grateful for all the people that sacrificed their Monday evening to come give us a hug and a smile. Life is so busy… and when people make time to get dressed up, drive to a funeral home, and stand in lines just to let friends know how much they care… it’s a very big deal! I sincerely pray this morning… for blessings to shower down on every single one of our kind visitors from last night… and all those who will come to the funeral today. The difference is FELT by all of us!
My message today will be short, since I still need to finish writing the funeral message… and I need to pray for the strength to be able to do this. Today I burry my Uncle, Big Brother, and FRIEND… and tomorrow I observe the 3 year anniversary of my Mom’s passing. In three years… I’ve lost three PILARS: My Mom, my Grandfather, and now my Uncle Tuff. Rest in peace you guys!
Todays inspirational thought: Life is short… so live each day as if there really is NO tomorrow.
This morning, I woke up thinking about how bad I’ve been eating and all the stress I’ve been under lately. I thought about the changes I need to make if I really want to live a long life. I thought about the things that matter most to me… and the things that really shouldn’t matter at all.
As I was leaving the bedroom, I walked around to Emily’s side of the bed and gave her an extra hug… kissed her forehead and gave her another hug… and then another one, with big tears in my eyes. Should my life end this morning, I wanted her to know how much she was LOVED by the man of her dreams!
The reality of my Uncles SUDDEN departure is turning my world upside down in so many ways.
I cant help myself from wondering, who in my sphere of influence is heading to heaven next? Is it going to be me? Do my friends and family KNOW how much I care about them? My Uncle Tuff LOVED me so much! That I KNOW beyond all doubt! And even though his life was ended suddenly… he loved like there was no tomorrow. Even though he couldn’t say goodbye to his kids… he left EVERY OUNCE of his heart with them by the way he LOVED them EVERY DAY!
What if your life ended suddenly, this week? Are you ok with your friends and family having to figure out how you felt just by the way you lived and loved? What kind of changes will you need to make so that you leave this earth with no unfinished business? Life is short, even when we live to 95. We are here today… and TOMORROW, we are gone.
I pray todays blog causes you guys and gals to think and pray for the kind of change that makes YOUR life ALL that it’s supposed to be and so much more! I pray that this blog site keeps on adding tremendous value to your amazing lives! God bless you all…
Ps: So much for a short blog! lol
