I have always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I have to be more specific.

As I sit here today. My friend Grace has just passed away. It makes me realize how quickly life can just be over. How important it is to do what we mean to do now. We may not have a tomorrow. I sit here and feel hollow inside and I feel like such a loser. Why am I alive and she isnt? She had a husband who loved her. She was young! She was always happy and fun to be around. She was a light. I'll never forget her. I wish now that I had sent that get well card when she got sick from the flu instead of complaining that I got sick too,, now it's too late. Please, don't put off those important communications.. you may not have another chance. Now I will send Pete a sympathy card but how I wish Grace had had a card from me when she was alive. Now here I sit with a card in my hand that she never got. It serves to remind me how important it is to reach out to those we love and let them know how important they are to us. If you are reading this and have someone you need to write.. do it now, do it today.. regrets are hard to live with. Take it from me. I have a heavy heart today and I feel so ashamed of myself. How could I get so wrapped up in my own little world that I wasn't there for my friend? Sure I've lost weight. I've loved the journey but I wish I had been a better friend.
