Leave People with a Smile & A Kind Word
Friday, January 13, a regular member came in and talked to my co-worker and I. He is a 60 year old man, with a knack for telling inappropriate jokes.
Tuesday, January 17, I got a phone call from one of his workout buddies - a very dear friend of his - that was calling to let us know he had passed away.
What a slap of reality.
It's such a pity that it takes something like that for you to remember how precious and how special life is.
You truly don't know when (IF) you'll see them again.
It also makes you realize how important it is to always leave people with a smile + a kind word.

It's so true though because you can see that if you don't leave loving words for your love ones and it maybe the last time you would see them.ReplyDelete
