Love the ones you’re with

I would rather have one rose and a kind word
from a friend while I’m here
than a whole truck load when I’m gone.

The lovely image of roses and chocolates, and the sentiment, was just forwarded to me by my friend Lisa. You know, even a virtual gift of roses and chocolates is a joy to receive (though I AM partial to the real things as well), so, THANK YOU, Lisa. 🙂

This got me thinking about the fact that life is short and uncertain. Since I have no guarantee as to how long I or those I care about will live, let me remember to show kindness to them while I may.

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. – Galatians 6:10

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. – 1 John 3:18
