My husband is preaching a funeral tomorrow. He is working very hard to consider all things and do a good job. I love him for that.
I expect there will be flowers and tears from those who cared for this lady. Laughter may mingle with heartache as her loved ones recall the good times. Regret may hover over some who left important things unsaid.
I once heard the question asked, “Why do we wait until the funeral to send someone flowers?”
Why do we? Because life is busy? Because we assume we will have more time? Because we feel awkward?
If you love someone, tell them.
Life is short. We don’t know how much time we have. Make the most of it.
Send flowers. Write a note of encouragement. Smile. It will do you and the recipient the world of good!
And don’t forget to write a letter to your loved ones.
