love life

Think of someone you love.
A parent, a spouse, a partner, a sibling, a child.
Someone that you care about.
Imagine you could never see, speak to or hear them ever again.
They would only exist to you as a memory.
A photograph of what once was.
What would you give for just 1 minute more with that person?

What if the only chance you had
Was now?

Live every moment.

Sounds a bit sad. But good ending.

It reminds me of a question, a friend once asked, if there was a fire in your house, and you could only save one person, who would it be? I didn't like that question cause its hard to think about making such a decision.

What if you never spoke to the person, and wish you could have.

I actually got this idea listening to someone talk about how they wish they had just one more minute with their late husband.

It made me realize how quick life is, and how much we take for granted.

7 years before my father died hhandd me instuctions and a deed to a burial plot near Jerusalem. We never spoke about it. I just kept the deed in my bureau. He must have a premoniiton that death was at his door when told where to find certain things and whom to call if 'something' happens. I reget that I did not have a final conversation with him. As a result I have entered middle age with issues. I wish I could walk away from those memories
