After an alarming medical emergency, I came very close to loosing my husband. Somehow a Christmas miracle occured, and he is not only alive, but doing much better. While sitting at the hospital with him I couldn't help but to reflect upon my priorities the past few days. I was so wrapped up in my book that I took for granted that he would always be there for me when life settled down. As supportive as he always is, he encuoraged me to do what I had to. He was content to sit in the background and wait for me to come back to him. I now realize that I may not always have that chance.
Have you told your loved ones how much they mean to you lately? Have you taken time out of your busy schedule to spend some quality with them? It only takes a moment to say "I Love You", and it only takes a moment for something to happen where you may never get to see their faces again. This holiday season, inbetween your Christmas shopping and holiday parties, I hope that set aside some time in your busy schedule and give a great big hug to those who matter most to you. Make sure that every moment you have with them will last a lifetime, because this time just may be the last chance that you have.
