GBE2: Time

Time is that one precious resource we all seem to think we have an over abundance of and realize too late that there was/is never enough.

It seems like this year has brought a lot of loss with losing loved ones and friends suddenly without the time to say Goodbye, or that last "I love you". So today I'm taking the time to tell those I care about how I feel.

If you are reading this, I love you and am blessed that you are in my life in whatever capacity God has seen fit to place you in. I appreciate you and the countless things you've done and continue to do in the name of Friendship. You've kicked my butt when I needed it, let me cry on your shoulder, wiped my tears, gave me hugs, and smiles. Laughed even though something I may have done or said really wasn't all that funny, and made me feel like Superwoman when I needed to keep putting one foot in front of the other but couldn't find the "S" that's supposed to be on my chest, or the motivation to do it. You've never let me down or turned your back on me even if at the time I thought you did. You've watched me go through some difficult times, some pretty tough life lessons, and the millions of times I've been single, then not single, then single again, to by  God I'm staying "Not Single" because I'm stupid if I let this man out of my life. You let me ride your motorcycle when I had to let mine go, you understand why I need to ride, and you allowed me to keep my sanity. you welcomed me into your community and lives and made me feel like I have a home away from home to belong to. You've let me love your family in the absence of my own. And You've had a shot or 40 with me, a beer, a glass of wine, or just pulled over so I didn't puke in your car.

I could go on and on and on...but you know what you've done and I want you to know that I know it too, and I love you for it.

So if for some reason you or I were to leave this Earth anytime soon....know that I love you for you, for your friendship, for being a part of my life and my every day.

Know that you are important enough for me to take the time to tell you so--

  1. A wonderful thing, to take the time to express your feelings:)

  2. This was a truly wonderful post. It seems that too often, people are more comfortable expressing their anger and sadness than they are their love. Fear of looking silly or being vulnerable? Maybe. That's a foolish way to live, though. Life is short and love is its sweetest gift. Good for you for understanding and acting on that. ♥

  3. awesome! and amazing use of your time. :)

  4. I'm with Beth on this. We don't tell the people we love how much we love them often enough. If some of my close friends stepped out of my life tomorrow, I would forever regret it if I hadn't told them they meant the world to me. Your post was right on the money.

  5. yup....time after time......still singing that song
    thankful you took the time!

  6. It's always a good time to tell others we love them. Good for you.
