Tell them you love them.

October is always a hard month for me...October 3rd is the day that my mom went to Heaven, three years ago. Her death was very unexpected...and I was travelling, so I heard that she had passed away when I was on an airplane 1,000 miles from home. It was horrible.

My mom was one of my best friends...and she was amazing. After she died, it made me realize how precious time is. And, how you need to tell the people that you love just how much you love them. All the time. Spend time with much time as you can. When we made the choice to move in with my Dad after she died, it was hard at first...but now I realize just how lucky I am to be able to spend every day with him. And how I would give anything to have realized how precious that time was before my mom died.

Yesterday, I read that one of the sweet bloggers that I have been following for years Julee...lost her husband Matt saturday night. He died in a car accident. They have a little girl named Preslee. I cannot even imagine what Julee is going through, but I do know that God is with her. Please pray for her, and for her daughter.

Hearing the news of Matt's tragic passing, made me realize again that never know what tomorrow will bring. You never know when that hug will be the last, or when you say I love you for the last time. Treasure the time that God has given you. Love the family that God has blessed you with. Even when they bug the heck out of you, even when your husband annoys you....when your kids are on your last nerve...when you sister irritates you...tell them you love them. Hug their neck. Treasure today.


  1. And now I'm crying. Hugs to you handling the loss of your Mom.

  2. I'm so sorry for the loss of your Mom. Things like these make me realize everyday needs to be lived without regrets and to the fullest.

  3. found your blog through the hop, and so glad I did. I can totally relate to the pain of loosing a parent ( I lost mine 3 years ago as well)

  5. Hi! I co-hosted the Return the Favor Blog hop last week and am just now getting around to checking out the link-ups and following because I was sick. :( Feeling much better now!
