The Only Matter of Consequence…

Yes, I’ve been absent for awhile again. Unfortunately, the past week has given me much to think about.

One of my coworkers–and friends–came home to find that her husband had passed away, from a heart attack.

My friend, Bridget, was there as her husband embarked on his last adventure. Sadly, the last stop of Hafemania is to a place where she can not yet follow.

These events have reminded me of the unpredictability of life, and the fact that we need to cherish the time we have with our loved ones. I once read a quote from someone who had lost her husband, saying that she longed to be annoyed by his snoring once again.

Cherish all the time, and all the things that annoy you. None of us know how much time we have. Never pass up a chance for a kiss, or to say “I love you.”

“The only matter of consequence…is what we choose to do with our allotted time.”. And right now, I’m going to spend time with my family. I’ll be back. If not tomorrow, later this week. In the meantime, give someone a hug, and delight in the fact that they’re here to annoy you.

  1. Sorry to hear that sad news. Yes, we never know what life has in store for us. Food for thought indeed. And don’t worry your absence, you post quite regularly and you are still writing – that’s the main thing!

    • Thanks, Sandra and Tony! I definitely need to get back to writing. When I don’t, I find myself debating politics. And that isn’t good for the blood pressure!

      Besides, weekends are a good place to start, with a FL post, and Sat and Sun’s. It’s time to get back to it…
