“Don’t bring me flowers when I’m gone. Give them to me While I Can Still Smell Them.” Yes, that’s another Mom quote.
Appreciation is a beautiful thing. We often think about how much we appreciate our loved ones and friends, but for some reason we can’t or don’t muster up the nerve to tell them so in a timely fashion. There is no such thing as a perfect time! That deserves emphasis: “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PERFECT TIME!” When you feel it, you should do it. Since I’m not promised another day, I voice my appreciation and express my love, verbal and otherwise, to those that have and continue to impact my life. I need for them to know just how much they mean to me. And if you were to flip the scenario around, you might be surprised at how much they need to hear that FROM you.
Appreciation is a beautiful thing. Remember what Mom said: “Don’t bring me flowers when I’m gone. Give them to me While I Can Still Smell Them.”
All the Best, All the Time!
