Life Is Short

Posted on Monday, March 9, 2015 in Uncategorized

001_1This is a picture of my friends Tiffany and Barry. I’ll see Barry next month. I last saw Tif in 1991.

Tiffany, Kris, Jenny, Eric, Rajjon, Adam, John, Beng, and Tyler, all TreeHouse teens. All gone. Way too soon.

Life Is Short

This is post is part of a series entitled “10 for 25.” It’s about ten lessons – most of them hard lessons to learn – that I’ve learned over my twenty-five years at TreeHouse.

Life is short. Our time with loved ones is never guaranteed.

So don’t miss your opportunities:
Say all your “I love you”s,
all your “I’m sorry”s and
all your “thank you”s
every day.

Countless grandparents, aunts and uncles, step-dads and step-moms, their boyfriends and girlfriends, our moms and dads, friends and “frienemies” all gone way too soon.

So say all your “I love you”s,
all your “I’m sorry”s and
all your “thank you”s
every day.

Life is short. Use it wisely.

Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God.” 1

Don’t hold back.
Don’t hold grudges.
Don’t wait for the other person to take the first step.
Don’t assume you have tomorrow.
Do your part, not theirs.

Say all your “I love you”s,
all your “I’m sorry”s and
all your “thank you”s
every day.
