OMG it's June already? Ok seriously where
did the time go? I swear to BoB it was just Valentine’s Day! Well I
guess time flies when you're having fun huh? Hope you guys are
having all the fun you can stand because I know Ms. Suga is. But I'm
also learning is more than just fun and games.
Last month I told you that everything will
be alright and I stand by that statement. But...I have to admit time
is not always on your side. Yes things will work themselves out but
it's not always on our time or how we want it to end up. We live in
a society where everyone wants any and everything when we want it
and how we want it. But the reality is life doesn't flow off the
Burger King creed you can't always have it your way. It may seem
like I'm being a little harsh but like always I'd rather you be mad
that I told you the truth then for you to call me a liar.
So as I sit here writing this it's been
almost a month since a woman I considered a friend passed away. She
and I hadn't talked in a long time, it wasn't because of any hard
feelings or emotions, it was just that life kept us busy. Anyway,
when I found out my friend passed it hurt my heart, not only was her
time done on the this earth but because I didn't have the chance to
tell her how much I appreciated her and how she influenced my life.
This woman and I weren't what one would call best-ies but her spirit
impacted me in a way I hadn't understood until shortly before she
passed. Last summer I experienced something similar with another
woman who I loved tremendously. She and I had a misunderstanding
some years back and I am so grateful she and I had made up when we
did. When she passed away last summer I cried, (I'm crying now) but
these tears are because I am thankful that we had the time we had
Sorry for getting a little sappy but y'all
know me well enough to know I am an open book when it comes to my
life lessons. So I said all that to tell you not to live this world
with regrets. If you love someone tell them now, if you've hurt
someone apologize to them. Life is too short to hold a
grudge...FORGIVE THEM and move on!!!
Not even 2 weeks ago, a town in Oklahoma was
ripped apart and people's lives were ruined. I'm sure there was one
person in that bunch that didn't get to say "thank you" or "I love
you" or "I'm sorry" and now they will never get that chance. I
encourage you to do so before it gets to be too late.
None of us knows when our time will end and
we really should live everyday like it is our last. I don't mean
live recklessly or destructively but do things great the first time
just in case you don't get a second shot. I don't intend to sound
grim nor do I want to scare you all but I'm trying to make a point.
Someone told me while back to learn to live with the apology you
might not ever receive. Some good stuff huh? With that simple
realization I decided to forgive and forget the wrongs done to me.
Not that I didn't tell them how I felt but once I let it out I let
And just like that I felt happier than I
felt in a while. If you never remember anything else I tell you I
hope you remember to forgive and tell those around you how you
REALLY REALLY feel. As my grandma used to say "Give me my flowers
while I'm alive baby, I won't be able to smell them when I'm dead".
Until next time loves!
