At the end of your life, will you know your worth? What will you be known for? Will you know what other’s think of you?
This weekend, we learned one of Tom’s brothers he served with had died. I have been reading the Facebook posts of the amazing things people are saying about him. Do you think he really knew what other’s thought about him. Probably not and that is very sad to me.
This is something I have actually been thinking about well before the diagnosis. I have always said that in the end our headstone will read: Loving Father/Mother, Husband/Wife, Brother/Sister, Son/Daughter and friend. Nothing about kickass employee, top in career or had 500+ friends on Facebook. Once the Alpha Lima Sierra diagnosis came into our lives, we have made it a point to say and show our love and not to leave things unsaid.
At the Big He’s retirement party, we got to hear and read all the wonderful things that his co-workers thought of him. It was overwhelming. I know he is amazing but to hear other’s knew this too (well actually to hear others can see past the @$$ attitude he sometimes has) was amazing.
If you knew tomorrow that your loved one would not be here anymore would there be anything unsaid? So what would you say if you had the chance?
All my love,
